2nd State of Human Rights Report - GROWING OLD IN KENYA: MAKING IT A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE
This report, “Growing old in Kenya: making it a positive experience” has been prepared by the National Commission in fulfillment of its mandate of providing an overall
assessment on the character of and conditions for the exercise of human rights in Kenya. The thesis of the study which the National Commission undertook so as to prepare this report is that inequality and discrimination pervades the lives of older persons living in Kenya; and that such persons are incredibly vulnerable to economic, social and political vagaries which call human rights interventions.
Remedying the vulnerabilities of older persons is informed by the obviosity that old age is a stage preceded by multiple opportunities of interventions during the process of growing old.
