Assistance Strategy

The goal of the Joint UN Programme of Support on AIDS is to reduce the spread of HIV in Kenya, improve the quality of life of those infected and affected, and mitigate the socio-economic impact of the HIV epidemic.

Primary purpose: To support a multi-sectoral response to HIV/AIDS through the development of an effective, evidence-based and nationally-led Joint Programme. The Joint Programme aims at effective UN collaboration, improved donor harmonization, and alignment with the Kenya National HIV/AIDS Strategic Plan (KNASP, 2005/06– 2009/10) and the National AIDS Control Council.

The Joint Programme outcomes are also in line with the KNASP:

  • Outcome 1: Reduce the number of new infections in both high risk groups and the general population;
  • Outcome 2: Improve treatment and care, protection of rights and access to effective services for infected and affected people;
  • Outcome 3: Adapt and develop existing programmes and innovative responses to reduce the impact of the epidemic; and
  • Outcome 4: Support of the national HIV response with the “Three Ones” effectively functioning as the basis for all programming and resource allocation.

The UNDAF focuses on UN reform, harmonization and alignment of the UN system’s work on HIV/AIDS, particularly as it relates to increased alignment with the Kenya National HIV/AIDS Strategic Plan and promotion of the “Three Ones” principles.

The “Three Ones" principles aim to achieve the most effective and efficient use of resources, and to ensure rapid action and results-based management through: (1) one HIV/AIDS Action Framework that provides the basis for coordinating the work of all partners; (2) one National AIDS Coordinating Authority, with a broad-based multisectoral mandate; and (3) one country-level monitoring and evaluation system. The Joint UN Programme of Support on AIDS contributes primarily towards the achievement of Millennium Development Goal 6: Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases.
