Universal Periodic Review in Kenya yields positive results

This January, the national Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mid-term report was launched. The issues that first faced opposition from different stakeholders, such as including wider mainstream civil society organisations and who were termed as ambitious, were all included in the report. The inclusion of HIV related issues in the previous UPR second cycle was weak. 

However, the HIV movement was able to bring back HIV into the mid-term report and inform the status of the implementation of HIV specific targets for further action. 
PITCH Kenya has been actively engaged in the UPR process over the past years. As a result of the UPR workshop in 2018, partners in Kenya have formed an HIV task force to inform human rights debates in the context of HIV and engage in the UPR process. 

Kenya UPR third cycle will be organised in February 2020, and civil society organisations in country are already engaging in the process to prepare the CSO report. At the end of this month, a UHC meeting will take place in Nairobi to inform country partners of UHC national plans and provide them with an opportunity to strategise together.
