A critical analysis of the national HIV/AIDs policy on disabled women in Kenya

PDF version

The Government of Kenya has the mandate of mainstreaming gender into the development process. To enable the Ministries to carry out this mandate policies have been formulated and structures established to carry out the exercise. In spite of the existence of the folk instruments and institutional frameworks, programs on gender mainstreaming have not bee effective. One of the reasons has been inadequate co-ordination of various initiatives gender mainstreaming. The other reason is absence of a standard training manual which ca be used by all stakeholders who are involved in gender mainstreaming. However, remarkable efforts have been made by the Ministry of Agricult1.lre (MOA) and the Ministry of Education (MOE). Some of the best practices identified with them include a gender policy, IEC materials development, gender officers in place, awareness· creation and a gender- basic analysis of examinations at Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya CeJ1ificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) level by MOE
