The UNAIDS China Office and the UNAIDS Kenya office, in collaboration with WeDoctor—a Chinese medical service platform—held an online session with more than 70 doctors from Kenya to share China’s experience responding to COVID-19.

Two Chinese experts—Dr Zhu Yunxia from Beijing YouAn Hospital, specialized in maternal and childbirth guidance and Dr Zhao Lei from Wuhan Union Hospital, specialized in infectious diseases—shared their hands-on experience responding to the novel coronavirus on the frontline, focusing on the general clinical treatment and perinatal management of COVID-19 infection.

“I trust that the presentations and discussions today will empower our doctors in Kenya with the skills that they require to achieve the success we need in Kenya’s COVID-19 response,” said the Kenyan Ambassador to China, Sarah Serem.

Christine Sadia, the chairperson of Kenya Medical Women's Association, offered her support to UNAIDS and WeDoctor to replicate the initiative beyond Kenya.
