At the strategic level, UN Women Kenya’s programmatic focus is guided by its Strategic Note 2019–2022 and aligned to the UN Women Strategic Plan (2018–2021) and national, continental, and international frameworks that have the ultimate goal of achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Gender equality and women’s empowerment are prerequisites for strong institutions and stable communities and economies.
