The County Government of Laikipia, under the authority the first lady, Her Excellency Grace Wakahora, has officially inaugurated the Championing Evidence Based Advocacy (CEBA) Project. Supported by the Kenya Pediatric Research Consortium (Keprecon).
The project which endeavors to establish a sustainable advocacy movement, primarily focuses on the improvement of Reproductive, Maternal, Neonatal, Child, Adolescent Health and Nutrition (RMNCAH+N), as well as Primary Health Care (PHC) concerns, which commands the attention of both the national and county governments.

This approach aims to cultivate health-seeking behaviors, particularly in maternal and child health services and utilizing targeted strategies for social behavior change. Additionally, it seeks to fortify the healthcare system and foster environments that deliver high-quality and equitable health services in a sustainable manner.
By equipping health workers in Laikipia with advocacy training, we enable them to analyze policy issues, identify gaps, and advocate for the implementation of policies that promote community well-being and equality," the County First Lady expressed.
H. E Governor Joshua Irungu, EGH, Deputy Governor H.E Reuben Kamuri, Chief Executive Director of Keprecon, Prof. Fred Were, Laikipia County CECMs, and esteemed county dignitaries graced the occasion.
