The government has dismissed critics who argue that the International Conference on Population Development (ICPD), which ends Thursday, was not inclusive.
Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Macharia Kamau said the summit has been very inclusive, contrary to what some organisations and churches opposing the ICPD have made Kenyans believe.
He said Kenya hosted the forum because it promotes “substantive and transformative” commitments.
Speaking on the sidelines of the ICPD summit, Mr Macharia said: “Sometimes you look for summits which will have substantive and transformative commitments.”
He said every Kenyan is treated equally when it comes to access to health services.
The Nairobi summit’s objective is to accelerate efforts to achieve three zeros by 2030: zero unmet need for contraception; zero preventable maternal deaths; and zero gender-based violence and harmful practices, such as child marriage and female genital mutilation.
