UNICEF has pledged $150 (Sh15 billion) to support Universal Health Coverage pillar of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Big Four agenda.
Health CS Sicily Kariuki revealed this on Wednesday after holding a meeting with UNICEF Kenya representative Werner Schultink in Nairobi.
“Had a productive meeting with the representative of @UNICEFKenya, Mr. @janwerners. @UNICEF has pledged 150 million US$ to support #UHC through immunisation and nutrition programmes for the next four years,” Kariuki said in a tweet.
“We also discussed the ongoing immunisation rapid results initiative,” she added.
The cash will be a boost to the Big4 budget estimated at about Sh460 billion.
