Beginning their work on the right to health through the lens of PLHIV, KELIN’s work on the right to health shows a great sensitivity to issues of discrimination and marginalization, as well as to the need to create systems. Under Allan Maleche’s leadership, KELIN has bravely advocated for people who have found themselves excluded from the promises of Kenya’s Constitutional vision. The importance of KELIN, and civil society organizations willing to hold the government to account for laws, policies and programs, is fundamental to stregthening and sustaining Kenyan democracy. I am enormously proud that Harvard FXB has a long-term partnership with KELIN.
