NEPHAK builds the technical and institutional capacity of member organizations to effectively design and implement HIV and TB programmes; by reaching them with NEPHAK organizational development and systems strengthening (ODSS) initiatives and disseminating relevant information on HIV and TB.
Through improved policy and programming for the delivery of Universal Access to HIV and TB services, NEPHAK engages with political leadership and funding partners and participates at high level national forums and meetings; linking PLHIV with legal aid services, including at KELIN and the HIV and AIDS Equity Tribunal. NEPHAK’s advocacy interventions seek to see an improved engagement with the national TB program and other partners on collaborative HIV and TB to promote human rights, gender responsiveness, food security and engage in national-level advocacy around rights issues. With an intensified advocacy budget, NEPHAK is able to sustain HIV and TB resource allocation and expenditure tracking activities and distribute targeted information, education and communication materials developed to guide NEPHAK’s advocacy and engagement with political actors i.e. The unveiled Kenya PLHIV Manifesto.
Networking and Alliance Building
Being a national network that brings together PLHIV and those affected by HIV and TB, NEPHAK values the impact of alliance building with like-minded organizations and individuals. NEPHAK’s engagement and collaboration with NACC and the Ministry of Health on HIV and TB prevention care and treatment activities has enhanced delivery of NEPHAK’s mission. Strategic partnerships and collaboration with organizations and networks that promote human rights, gender responsiveness and food security and engage in national-level advocacy around rights issues has also been enhanced.
NEPHAK subgrants to its member organizations to build their capacity on documenting and reporting to be able to undertake resource mobilization and to access resources allocated to Counties and other decentralized structures.
