This is our key area of focus given the tokenistic nature of youth engagement in health issues like governance, accountability, policy and service delivery. We believe that harnessing African demographic dividend is anchored on robust , equitable, affordable and rights based health care system.
Our youth and health programs are largely based on SRHR, Maternal health and HIV.
Our current programs include;
Coordinated SRHR/HIV Advocacy
The focus is accelerating the International Conference on Population and Development Implementation through co-ordinated Advocacy.
We seek to realize this by revitilzing the on going OAYouth coordinated national youth-led movement to advance gender equality, sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights during the ICPD PoA, AU Summits CSW, and HLPF and ensure the issue remains global priority within and beyond the 2030 Agenda.
Our strategies include;
Network formation: Kenya Adolescents and Youth SRHR/HIV Youth Network
The network has 24 youth led organization members
