The initiative is part of the Joint Program on Gender Based Violence conducted by the Government of Nairobi and the United Nations to support specific activities to strengthen response actions and accountability mechanisms against gender-based violence, to prepare for future election rounds. Activities will be implemented by UN Women and OHCHR, in close collaboration with right-holders and local institutions (such as police, judiciary and health services) in four counties (Nairobi, Kisumu, Bungoma and Migori), so as to promote peer-learning processes and good practices in Kenya.
