Fair Shares? Fiscal equity for children in Kenya

This briefing presents the results of new analysis of the impacts that public spending and taxation are having on child poverty and inequality in Kenya. Public spending is critical for putting essential foundations in place for economies to develop and societies to thrive – foundations such as education, health care, protection from violence and social safety nets.

These foundations are not only public goods but are also fundamental human rights – rights that are increasingly under threat, especially for children, as governments across the world struggle to manage the social and economic impacts of the Covid-19 crisis.
