Launch of Disability Mainstreaming Status Report 2021-2022

The Council launched its first Disability Mainstreaming Status Report for the Financial Year 2021/2022, during an event graced by CEOs and representatives from various Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), commissions, academia, members of the private sector, development partners and organizations of persons with disabilities.

This also forms the first official high-level publication by the Council – as part of efforts to make it a knowledge-generating institution on matters disability in Kenya.

The report highlights the performance of various MDAs on disability mainstreaming as part of their Performance Contracting obligations in the period under review. It also gives emphasis on the challenges faced in promoting disability inclusion, as well as recommendations on how to mitigate them. The report is now digitally available on our website.  https://ncpwd.go.ke/download/mdas-status-report-2022/

The Chief Guest was Cabinet Secretary – Ministry of Labour and Social Protection Hon. Florence Bore, who was accompanied by Principal Secretary – Social Protection Mr. Joseph Motari.

Hon. Bore called on MDAs to ensure ample support is granted to their disability mainstreaming committees, and ensure that the committees also include senior management for speedy implementation of proposals. With the country yet to have a disability policy in place, the Cabinet Secretary asserted her commitment to the finalization and adoption of a national disability policy which will form the guiding outline for disability inclusion in the country.

Executive Director Harun Hassan cited that the aim of the report, and those in the years to come, is not for naming and shaming, but for reviewing the work ‘that is yet to be done to make our governance more inclusive.’

Also in attendance was the Chairperson of the National Assembly Committee on National Cohesion and Regional Integration Hon. Yussuf dan Haji, EALA MP Hon. David Sankok, Nominated Senator Hon. Crystal Asige, Nominated Senator Bishop Emeritus (Dr.) Jackson Kosgei , Council’s Board of Directors and Assistant Director – Registration and Compliance Mr. James Ndwiga
