ADVOCACY

Owing to the devastating effects of production, consumption and exposure to tobacco and its related products, tobacco industry in Kenya is termed as a legal business. Therefore, there is need for effective regulatory measures to curb the tobacco menace.

As an organization, we ADVOCATE for and support strong tobacco control legislation and measures to help better the health of Kenyans at National and County levels.

COORDINATION

We acknowledge that tobacco control, unlike other advocacy matters, requires a well focused team effort. Therefore, we coordinate tobacco control efforts within and among tobacco control advocates and stakeholders in Kenya at both the national and county levels to ensure smooth advocacy efforts in Kenya.

We endeavour to provide an effective coordination mechanism for tobacco control stakeholders and champions within the country.

CAPACITY BUILDING

Tobacco control at both the national and county levels tend to be very dynamic and complicated. Therefore, KETCA together with other stakeholders work closely to build the capacity of various tobacco control stakeholders at both levels of governance.

Some of the stakeholders we have built capacities for include Tobacco control advocates; tobacco control enforcement teams at the counties; Members of county assemblies of Nairobi, Tharaka Nithi, Migori, Makueni, Mombasa, Migori and Machakos counties.

PUBLIC AWARENESS

We educate and sensitize the general public on the harmful effects involved in the production, consumption and exposure to tobacco and its related products. We run various educational and sensitizational activities at national and county levels through open forums, media discussions and even public barazas provided for by local leaderships
