SEXUAL REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH
AND RIGHTS (SRHR)

About

Our Sexual Reproductive Health Project-SRHR project is a three-year project which runs from 2022 to 2025. It targets adolescents and youth between 10 to 24 years old, their parents, teachers, health service providers, community leaders, key county departments, and other stakeholders in matters of SRHR in Kilifi County, specifically in Kilifi South and Chonyi Sub-Counties. The aim of the project is to sustainably contribute to the reduction of teenage pregnancy and improving access to sexual reproductive health and rights information and services among adolescents and youth.

The project aims to achieve the following four outcomes: 

  1. Adolescents and youth have improved their knowledge on SRHR, life skills, and gender justice issues and are empowered to make informed decisions. 
  2. Adolescents and youth have improved access to and have increasingly used youth-friendly SRHR services in their area.
  3. Community members and parents are aware of the needs of young people in relation to SRHR and demonstrate a positive attitude toward supporting young people.
  4. Support advocacy and multisectoral coordination to address gender issues and the SRHR needs of adolescents and youth.

Project activities are designed to target:

  • In- and out-of-school adolescents and youth
  • Parents
  • Community leaders
  • Healthcare providers
