REACHOUT is a research consortium working in six countries (Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique) aimed at improving the delivery of close-to-community health services in rural areas and urban informal settlements by improving their equity, effectiveness and efficiency.

 

In Kenya, REACHOUT has been working along with community health volunteers (CHVs) their supervisors, known as community health extension workers (CHEWs), and sub-county community health co-ordinators. The study is implemented in Nairobi and Kitui counties and provides training in supervision and mentoring.

 

While implementing REACHOUT, We learnt that young people often do not engage with health services. We used photovoice research to engage local youth in an urban informal settlement, Korogocho. As part of the photovoice research young people photographed life and health issues and identified potential solutions to the problems that they face.

 

Find below the photo voice report showcasing the photos taken by the young people.
