Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (2010 To-date)

Since 2010, the ASRH&R project has been promoting positive behaviour among adolescents aged 10 to 24 years old. The programme targets adolescents both in and out of school, pairing schools and out of school clubs with youth organisations and health centres to provide youth-friendly services.

The ASRH&R project also trains peer educators to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and teaches adolescents to reduce the risk of unplanned pregnancies.

Through this project:

• 293,652 youth and adolescents have accessed ASRH&R youth friendly services, including STI and HIV screening and treatment, contraceptive methods, ante and post-natal counselling and male circumcision,
• The ASRH&R project has been implemented in 107 school and 156 out-of-school clubs.
