  • Summary:
  • A case study on water supply and sanitation conditions and policies in Kenya in the context of the Millennium Development Goals and HIV/AIDS . The study aims to facilitate learning on how HIV/AIDS affects the water and sanitation sector, and how administrators and policy makers may respond to, and cope with the effects of the disease. It provides an overview of water sector conditions and policies in Kenya in the light of Millennium Development Goals; insights into the relationship of these goals and their realization with the broader context of poverty, water resources conditions and management, and HIV/AIDS; illustrations of the influence of the epidemics on attitudes and coping strategies with examples of community and agency/project experiences; and lessons and recommendations on how administrators, policy makers, and donors can better cope with the disease and its implications for the water sectors.
