Kenyan First Lady Expands Her Campaigns Across Africa.


Mrs. Margaret Kenyatta has increased her engagements in efforts to end Child and Maternal deaths not only in Kenya but also across Africa.

Speaking when she officially opened the second International Conference on Maternal, New-born and Child Health (MNCH) in Nairobi, she said that the goal of ending the deaths by 2030 is not out of reach, but added that more is needed to be done for the continent to achieve zero maternal and child deaths.

The conference, which was held last week in Nairobi under the African Union Commission, brought together more than 1,000 delegates, technical experts and government health officials from 25 African countries.

The three-day event deliberated on several issues, including leadership, accountability and governance for MNCH, early infant diagnosis of HIV; a continental priority for an Aids-free generation, sexual reproductive health and rights and breaking the cycle of early marriages as key to ending teen pregnancies, among other health issues affecting women, girls and children in Africa.

The theme of the conference was ‘Maintaining Momentum and Focus Towards Ending Preventable Maternal and Child Deaths by 2030’.

This comes two weeks later after she opened a state-of -art maternity costing Ksh 500 million on October 17th 2018 in Nakuru county that will steer her beyond zero campaign forward.
