The University of Nairobi (UoN) College of Health Sciences (CHS) Principal, Prof. Isaac Kibwage officially opened a two weeks Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) Monitoring and Evaluation training for health programs at the Department of Defense Headquarters in Nairobi.
In his opening address, Prof. Kibwage noted that significant efforts have been made in the prevention of HIV infection and treatment for HIV/AIDS patients in Kenya.
However, the Principal said that these efforts have mainly been driven by international partners, leading to the importation of required human resources.
He said UoN had made tremendous efforts geared towards building the capacity of local organizations and workers to effectively offer health services especially in HIV/AIDS Programs in Kenya.
To achieve this, UoN has partnered with many local and international organizations among them the US Army Medical Research Unit-Kenya (USAMRU-K).
Prof. Kibwage said the collaboration between UoN, KDF and USAMRU in the area of Monitoring and Evaluation was of great importance and needs to be sustained to achieve a data driven mechanism for HIV Epidemic control adding that without a robust monitoring and sustainable system, it would be difficult to determine progress made in the prevention of HIV and treatment of the disease.
The training will be conducted from 11th to 22nd July, 2016.
