The Senior Management of Kenya National Commission for UNESCO led by the Secretary General Dr. Evangeline Njoka, MBS has successfully completed the Strategic Plan Review and Situational Analysis for the period 2014-2018. The exercise, which was undertaken at Flamingo Beach Resort in Mombasa, enabled the team to analyze performance against agreed upon parameters and critically provide the rationale for positive or negative performance.
While giving her remarks, Dr. Njoka extolled the dedication of all the staff who magnanimously sacrificed their time to implement the Commission’s strategic commitments and urged them to focus on ensuring that the new interventions identified for the next period were fully implemented. She also noted that despite the challenges faced during the plan period, the Commission had made great strides in its efforts to provide excellent, timely and quality service to stakeholders. With this in mind, the team developed a guiding framework upon which the next Strategic Plan for the period 2019-2023 will be based.
The retreat was punctuated by a talk on health matters that was redolent with the realities of modern day lifestyles. The illuminating session was presented by Dr. Griffin Manguro from the International Centre for Reproductive Health (ICRH), an affiliate of Aga Khan University and UNESCO Chair on Health. The key topics covered during the sensitization forum included HIV and AIDS, lifestyle diseases and cancer.
