Adolescent Health & Well Being

The Problem

One of the biggest problems that our young people are facing is lack of information on sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR), gender based violence (GBV), and HIV. This is why our main focus will be to disseminate correct information aimed at dispelling common myths and misinformation that is prevalent in our communities. We believe that the most effective method to address this problem is to focus on the family, the community and the service delivery environment. Our strategy will implement interventions aimed at building community support and strengthen capacity of service providers focused on increasing the quality of information and services available in the community.

The Solution

We pilot and document innovative approaches to reach the diverse groups of adolescents and young people including living with HIV, living with disability, Selling sex and LGBTQIs. We integrate the use of mobile technology and social media to deliver SRH and HIV knowledge and awareness as well referral to service providers. This strategy also integrates community-based approaches for information dissemination, peer support, and service referrals. We will aim to expand and improve support for the delivery of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) in schools, tertiary institutions and building support for SRH for adolescence and young people among communities and families.
