What CDC Is Doing in Kenya

For more than 30 years, CDC has worked to help strengthen the health system in Kenya, working in partnership with the government of Kenya and local and international partners to build sustainable public health capacity.

CDC Kenya saves lives through research and development of new interventions, such as vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics, and development of the leadership and scientific expertise required to build effective public health systems. Part of CDC’s Center for Global Health, CDC Kenya advances health science and technology in Kenya, particularly where current solutions are lacking. Once tools are proven to be effective, CDC Kenya evaluates ways to improve their delivery and address obstacles to uptake. CDC Kenya then helps translate research findings into policy recommendations alongside the government of Kenya, World Health Organization, and other partners. Collaborating with partners to translate research and policy into practice, CDC Kenya has contributed to the substantial scale-up of the Kenya government’s capacity to respond to serious public health threats, such as the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
