On 9 April 2020, the UN, NGO partners and the Kenya Red Cross launched an Emergency Appeal to complement the Government’s response efforts. The Appeal asks for $267.5 million to assist 10.1 million of the most vulnerable people across the country.
Since the launch of the Appeal, sector coordination and inter-sector coordination platforms composed of UN, NGO, government and private sector have been meeting on a weekly basis at the national and county levels. At the county level, six humanitarian hubs have been activated to coordinate response efforts. These multisectoral platforms complement the Government’s Public Health response structures supported by WHO and partners. UN agencies have seconded staff to support the Government in coordinating and implementing its response.
