ACT is a three-year initiative that aims to improve the sexual and reproductive health, care and rights of adolescents and families living with or affected by HIV in Kenya. The project’s foundation is based upon:
- Integrated HIV and sexual and reproductive service delivery for adolescents and gender transformative approaches that empower boys and girls to prevent HIV infection and sexual ill health;
- Mitigating the impact of HIV by providing access to micro-credit and income-generating activities – aimed especially at young women and girls;
- Providing skills and mentorship training by utilising the infrastructure of the IPPF to support young people in issues beyond the health sector; and,
- Strengthening programmes aimed at addressing the prevention needs of young people living with HIV.
