The Global Handwashing Partnership

Collaborating for urgent local action to tackle COVID-19 in Kenya

April 16, 2020

The Kenyan National Business Compact for COVID-19  was officially launched in Nairobi on March 16, 2020. The coalition was convened by The Marketing Society of Kenya comprised of competing brands in hygiene, Kenya Association of Manufacturers, Kenya Private Sector Alliance, Public Relations Society of Kenya, AMREF, Association of Practitioners in Advertising, SDG Partnership Platform, and the UN family in Kenya. The compact is working with Business Fights Poverty and other Business networks on global best-practice sharing with areas of focus that include:

  • Provide unified communications around COVID-19 to support and clarify messages to communities;
  • Scale up hygiene facilities in government-identified hotspots by leveraging the supply chain to increase handwashing supplies and infrastructure; and
  • Create a flexi-fund for rapid response to government appeals.
