STOWELINK TRAINED ON TRANSFATTY ACIDS ELIMINATION IN KENYA

Stowelink executive represented by Ogweno Stephen the CEO and Oduor Kevin the CPO joined other media and legal stakeholders in a three-day intensive training session by the International Institute Of Legislative Affairs to have a deep dive on trans fats and its elimination in Kenya. In the training, Stowelink received legal training on the various laws and processes that are currently in place concerning trans fats and how through, research, legislation, lobbying and alliance building we can actively contribute to creating better laws to ensure that we are able to eliminate trans fats in Kenya and adopt healthier alternatives.

Why Trans fats and why should it be eliminated? Trans fat is considered the worst type of fat to eat. Unlike other dietary fats, trans fats — also called trans-fatty acids — raise “bad” cholesterol and also lowers “good” cholesterol. A diet laden with trans fats increases the risk of heart disease, the leading killer of adults.

The International Institute for Legislative Affairs (IILA) is a not- for- profit organization that works closely with Policy making institutions, Government Departments, Members of Parliament and other stakeholders in the legislative process to draft and advocate for pro- people policies and legislation. IILA’s mandate is to engage stakeholders in the policy and legislative process to facilitate the enactment and implementation of policies and legislation that have a positive impact on the lives of people
