dc.description.abstractPurpose: The purpose of the study was to conduct a baseline assessment of recipients of OPCT program in Kibera informal settlements Methodology: The exploratory design was considered appropriate for this study. Random sampling was used to select 50 respondents (15men, 35women) OPCT beneficiaries who were not members of KDC and 20 members of KDC. Random sampling was ideal because each respondent of the target population had an equal chance of being selected. Purposive sampling was used to identify 5 key informants. Results: The study found out that there were more women compared to men in the OPCT program. The study noted that the OPCT beneficiaries were 65 years and above, which showed adherence to the objective selection criteria. It was observed further that majority of the elderly OPCT beneficiaries also suffered from chronic diseases such as tuberculosis, high blood pressure and diabetes. Unique contribution to theory, practice and policy: To the recipients of OPCT, they should be sensitized and ensure they follow the required protocol so that they can avoid being struck off the register, and form welfare groups where they can socialize, share, enlighten each other, make friends and even champion their rights.en_US
