This Practical Guide for Continuity of Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Family Planning Care and Services in the Background of COVID19 Pandemic in Kenya was developed in response to the new Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). COVID -19 is a serious highly contagious respiratory viral infection caused by a novel coronavirus recently named SARS-COV2. The outbreak started in Wuhan City, Hubei Province in mainland China and has since spread globally, infecting more than 1,925,000 people resulting in over 119,600 deaths, and occurring in 210 countries. This pandemic continues to pose grave danger to all populations, particularly those in Sub-Saharan Africa where overburdened health systems continue to struggle with scarcity of human and financial resources.
