“Kenya Leading the Way” is an ENGAGE multimedia presentation that examines the important link between family planning and development in Kenya. The presentation incorporates Google Earth, animation, video, and the groundbreaking Trendalyzer (bubble graph) software.

“Kenya Leading the Way” highlights both the improvements in development indicators over time as well as the disruptions and “stall” in family planning use. Focusing on the high level of unmet need for family planning, it presents the many consequences of unplanned pregnancies, including high-risk births, maternal mortality, and rapid population growth. The presentation highlights family planning as a central component of development in order to reduce poverty, underscoring how increased family planning use can contribute to improvements in the health and well-being of Kenyan families.

“Kenya Leading the Way” was developed by PRB and Kenya’s National Council for Population and Development (NCPD) in collaboration with a task force of local experts in population and family planning. Dissemination of the presentation is supported by USAID Kenya under the Informing Decisionmakers to Act (IDEA) project.

This multimedia presentation is available in two formats – with and without a recorded voiceover; CD-ROMs are also available by request. A presentation guide is also available to provide facilitators with the skills to effectively deliver the presentation.

With funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development, IDEA—Informing Decisionmakers to Act—increases support among policy audiences for effective health and population programs around the world. By increasing the flow of accurate, understandable information about population, family planning, and reproductive health to policy audiences, IDEA enhances efforts carried out by civil society, the public sector, the development community, and donors. Under IDEA, PRB has developed a series of dynamic multimedia ENGAGE presentations to engage global leaders and country-level policymakers in issues related to family planning, reproductive health, and other key development issues.
