Because of her efforts, the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta has been awarded the prestigious Eastern Africa Lifetime Achievement Award for her relentless efforts to stop preventable maternal and newborn deaths in the country through her Beyond Zero Initiative.

The recognition also considered the First Lady's sustained efforts towards the elimination of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV, an intervention that has led to a significant reduction of new transmissions among newborn babies.

Kenyatta received the award from the EY Group during the organization’s Eastern Africa Chapter Entrepreneur of the Year Award (EOY) 2018 gala dinner held at a Nairobi hotel Wednesday evening. She was the chief guest at the event.
