Kenya: First Lady Secures Support for Beyond Zero in Us

Cambridge, Usa — First Lady Margaret Kenyatta on Wednesday secured more support in the US for the Beyond Zero campaign, that targets eliminating maternal and neo-natal mortality as well as HIV infections among women and newborns.

At a meeting with the First Lady at Cambridge, Hon Mark Dybul, MD, who was recently in Kenya to discuss support for the Universal Health Coverage, pledged to use his wide experience as a global health expert to enable more Kenyans access quality healthcare through the Beyond Zero initiative.

"The work you are doing to take healthcare services to the communities at the grassroots level is quite incredible and we will support it in the best way we can," Dr Dybul said.

Dr Dybul is the Faculty Co-Director of the Center for Global Health and Quality, and Professor in the Department of Medicine at Georgetown University Medical Center.

He is also a Board member of the Big win Philanthropy that funded the Annual Harvard University Leadership Forum on Health and Education that was address by the First Lady on Monday.

The First Lady welcomed the support from the renowned global health expert and humanitarian and presented him with a copy of the second strategic plan for the Beyond Zero campaign that aims at securing gains made in the past five years.
