Adolescent and Young People

Adolescent and Young People

Giving Adolescent and Young people control over their future.

LVCT Health caters to the needs of adolescents and young people aged between 10 and 24 in Kenya. We provide them with reliable, credible, and high-quality information and access to services on Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH), Mental Health, Gender-Based Violence (GBV), and HIV in a non-judgmental manner.

We support the National Syndemic Diseases Control Council (NSDCC) to address the triple threat of New HIV infections, adolescent teenage pregnancies and Gender Based Violence threats.

Our Strategic Focus

  • Utilise innovative communication channels, e.g., digital platforms, to pass comprehensive, age-appropriate, and accurate information or messages on sexuality, SRH, adolescent health and HIV prevention among adolescents and young people
  • Facilitate capacity development of service providers, including county government systems and structures, health care workers, community health volunteers, and Youth Advisory Councils (YACs) for improved sexual reproductive health services to adolescents and young people
  • Pilot and scale up interventions for delivering age-appropriate SRH services to adolescents and young people
  • Support scale-up of cervical cancer screening and treatment interventions.
