  • Between 3 and 3.5 million people are projected to be food insecure in Kenya in June and July.
  • Since the beginning of the country’s ‘long rains’ season in early March, nearly 302,000 people have been affected, including over 211,000 displaced.
  • According to a survey in five informal settlements in Nairobi, the fear of being stigmatized if infected with COVID-19 was extremely high.
  • Women in urban informal settlements are disproportionately shouldering the burden of social distancing and lockdown measures.
  • Out of the country's 47 counties, 32 have reported COVID-19 cases. Risk communication, laboratory testing, and contact tracing have been identified as key challenges.
