The National Council for Population and Development (NCPD) has signed an agreement with Jhpiego to carry out advocacy activities in the self-selected Counties of Migori, Kilifi, Kericho, Uasin Gishu, Nairobi and Mombasa by providing technical backstopping to County governments. Through the agreement, NCPD will ensure that there is a functional county mechanism for mobilizing resources for family planning from government, donor and private sector sources. The Council will also ensure creation of County FP Champions from self-selected counties who will advocate for dedicated FP Budget lines. Finally NCPD will ensure that the self-selected counties have capacity to conduct resource mapping activities in their respective counties.
In view of the above, the Migori County TCI landscaping meeting took place on 30-31st March 2017 at the County Director of Health boardroom. The NCPD County Population Coordinator joined the others of the core team that expected to drive the intensive engagement aimed at increasing uptake of family planning services Migori County.
