Abstract:

The Government of Kenya, through the National AIDS Control Council, is developing the Kenya AIDS Strategic Framework 2014/2015 to 2018/2019 to provide guidance on the country’s priorities in HIV programming and increase the effectiveness of the national response. The framework will build on and succeed the Kenya National AIDS Strategic Plan 2010–2013 (KNASP III).
To inform work on the new framework, from April to October 2014, the council collaborated on a study with the Health Policy Project (funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief). The study team examined the social, cultural, and political barriers to and facilitators of policies intended to support the four pillars in HIV programming: HIV prevention, treatment, and care and multisectoral mainstreaming. The team also considered how these barriers and facilitators, in turn, affect clients’ experience of HIV programs under previous HIV strategic plans. This information made it possible to assess the social feasibility of Kenya’s HIV programs.
