We as the Kenyan team had planned a 3 pronged approach to demystify pediatric rheumatology in our home country Kenya and raise awareness. The first event was a sympoisum for health workers where we discussed a syndromic approach in diagnosing pediatric rheumatology cases and invited nurses, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, radiologists, opthalmologists, nutritionist and psychologist to expound on their role in managing pediatric rheumatology cases.

The second approach was to have media interviews to reach out to policy makers about the need to prioritize children with rheumatological diseases.

The third approach was to organize a walk for the citizens to raise awareness for pediatric rheumatology which was scheduled for March 21st 2020. However, we had to put this on hold given that the first case of the Corona pandemic was confirmed on March 13th and since then all public gatherings have been prohibited. We hope to proceed with this activity once the ban on public gatherings has been lifted.
