Policy & Political

DateAugust 10, 2017

We commit to influencing the content of the Kenya National Youth Policy and at least three other relevant policies, to reflect the current and emerging issues related to family planning and every new born action plan by advocating for improvement in access to, and quality of healthcare for young women and newborns by 2020. We will achieve this through youth led coordinated advocacy from the grass root level through citizens’ hearings and existing accountability structures in Kenya and also work with the government to disseminate, Adolescents and Youth Friendly Health Services Training Manual that we jointly contributed to, to health service providers.

Organization of Africa Youth, in collaboration with Kenya AYSRHR/HIV Network and Fit for Life Africa will focus on coalition building at the grassroots and empower the youth to understand advocacy tactics to push for accountability from the duty bearers. The outcomes of the advocacy documented as case studies will inform our proposed interventions and policies around RMNCAH and our inputs to the National Youth policy, which is currently under review, and relevant policies/documents at sub national, national, regional and global levels.
