In August 2012, the Republic of Kenya joined the SUN Movement with a letter of commitment from HE Beth Mugo, the Minister for Public Health and Sanitation. In order to support the government’s multistakeholder vision to end malnutrition, a network of interested businesses began to grow.

Not only is the network engaging across industries, the Kenyan SUN Business Network Secretariat features representation from no less than three government ministries, private sector associations and UNICEF.
