Social Support

In Kenya, the Slums are not only characterized by the serious lack of basic services and necessities, but also sub-standard housing, poorly planned and inadequate structures, overcrowded households, unhealthy living conditions, hazardous environments, insecurity of tenure leading to impoverished slum communities and social exclusion. Substantial evidence reveals that the quality of life in most urban informal areas in Kenya is worse than in rural areas. While COGRI targets vulnerable households both in urban informal settlements as well as in rural areas, under this thematic area social determinants that impact health will be mitigated through provision of basic social support. This intervention will be compounded by instituting long term permanency planning for households thus enabling the targeted communities to be more involved in planning and implementation with sufficient ownership.

Objective 4: To provide Social Support services to at least 50% HIV infected and affected OVC with their families and enhance the existing capacity of the local communities to provide care and support to 8, 000 OVC and their families by the end 2017
