The German BACKUP initiative, through GTZ Health Sector Programme, is supporting four organisations in Kenya to implement gender sensitive and gender transformative HIV programmes. The support is a contribution to better health for all Kenyans. This is in line with the Kenyan new Constitution that protects the health rights of all Kenyans.
The organisations and the corresponding projects supported include:
The GTZ Health Sector Programme, on 7th September 2010, held a kick-off meeting with the implementing partners with a view to clarify various aspects of the BACKUP programme and identify areas of synergy in implementation of the projects. The areas of synergy identified include: technical assistance, cooperation between partners, information sharing among others.
The German BACKUP initiative is a programme supporting countries to improve their response to HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis. The Initiative was launched in 2002 shortly after the establishment of the Global Fund. It is financed by the German Federal Government and is currently in 68 countries. The main focus of the Initiative is provision of technical support, which is goal oriented, flexible and timely, to countries. The Initiative’s work centres on gender equality, integration into health systems, increased participation of civil society and on capacity development.
The objective of the gender component of the BACKUP Initiative is increased allocation of global resources for gender-sensitive and gender-transformative HIV programmes.
Five countries in Sub-Saharan Africa – Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Kenya, Tanzania and Malawi- are comprehensively supported by BACKUP with advocacy, planning, implementation and monitoring of gender oriented HIV programmes.2010-09-23
