The Governments of Kenya, the Netherlands and the UN hosted a high-level lunch dialogue on accelerating access to primary care through public-private partnerships in order to progress towards Universal Health Coverage, and the attainment of SDG 3 and related targets in Kenya.

At the UNGA last year, the Government of Kenya and the UN decided to establish an SDG Partnership Platform in Kenya that would demonstrate the power of SDG partnerships and help identify bold transformative ways for accelerating universal access to primary care. Since then, great progress has been made in establishing this Platform and a Multi-Partner Trust Fund has been set-up to support the initiative. The event updated participants on the progress made, and discussed how to support Kenya in making the SDG Partnership Platform a ground-breaking success.
