Realising that up scaling CLTS over the next two and half years will not be possible with a "business as usual" approach, the Ministry of Public Health & Sanitation is establishing a National CLTS Coordination and Knowledge Management Hub with the assistance of UNICEF, SNV and other partners. The Honourable Minister for Public Health & Sanitation, Mrs. Beth Mugo will lead the inauguration of the hub at Afya House, Nairobi on 11th May 2011 at 9.30am. Dr. Kamal Kar, the pioneer of CLTS (Community Led Total Sanitation) globally, will also be present.
After the inauguration of the coordination hub, the the "ODF Rural Kenya by 2013" campaign will be launched by the Ministry at the Silver Springs Hotel between 11am and 2pm also on the 11th May 2011. The Honourable Minister for Public Health & Sanitation, Mrs. Beth Mugo accompanied by Dr. Kamal Kar will launch the campaign followed by a media debriefing.
