The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) is working towards ensuring the establishment of a legal framework that will fill the gap in the law for the protection of the rights of the intersex persons. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at the commission, Dr. Bernard Mogesa, said KNCHR is working with the Office of the Attorney General and the Kenya Law Reform Commission to achieve this. He said that as much as the laws acknowledge the existence of this group, they are not comprehensive enough to protect their rights against discrimination and stigmatisation therefore leaving a gap. Mogesa noted that members of the intersex community have not been recognised in many critical provisions which other Kenyans are enjoying, such as the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) coverage, registration of identification, and others. “The intersex group is not covered by the NHIF, and they have faced discrimination in other areas as well,” he said.
