Religious Leaders’ Call to Action to End Pediatric HIV & TB in Kenya

During the commemoration of the Day of the African Child on June 16th 2017, Kenyan Religious Leaders from all Faiths committed themselves to taking action and to use their congregational platforms for outreach to community members in response to a global call to action entitled “Act now for children and adolescents living with HIV”, articulated by the World Council of Churches Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance (WCC-EAA).

The event was part of a broader, global call to action, to mobilize faith communities around the target of providing 1.6 million children and 1.2 million adolescents living with HIV with anti-retroviral therapy by 2018, and the ultimate goal of ending AIDS in children by 2020 globally.

This is part of the Live the Promise Campaign of the WCC-EAA which is mobilizing faith leaders around the world in a movement to support the Start Free Stay Free and AIDS Free Framework, a super-fast track framework launched in 2016 by UNAIDS and PEPFAR for ending AIDS in children, adolescents and young women by 2020.
