The Africa Policy Dialogues (APD) on social protection in Kenya hosted by Partnership for African Social and Governance Research (PASGR) in collaboration with Africa Institute for Health and Development (AIHD) have developed a video on the state of social protection in Kenya.
The video reiterates the role of the Ministry of East African Community (EAC), Labour and Social Protection and the Social Protection Secretariat in addressing social protection in Kenya. According to these agencies “Social protection consists of programmes and policies that help address risk vulnerability and poverty”.
The four social protection interventions highlighted are the Hunger Safety Net Programme, and cash transfers to orphaned and vulnerable children, to older persons, and to those with severe disabilities. The key highlights of the video as follows.
To address these challenges and enhance use of research evidence for effective social protection interventions, this APD brought together key stakeholders in social protection who successfully identified challenges to the use of evidence, and have contributed ideas to the formulation of a national social protection legislation in Kenya.
