Communities taking control over their own health

Communities taking control over their own health

Self-care increases the agency of one’s health. It can enable communities to prevent, diagnose and treat health issues in a private manner when and where it suits them best. Together with partners, we have built multiple (digital) self-care and health solutions that meet the need for accessibility, anonymity, and user-friendliness of SRHR/HIV information and services.

What does it look like? Here's how:

You(th)Care Programme

Young people advocate for and practice self-care for their SRHR needs, including products such as the Dapivirine ring and self-injectable contraceptives. In Zambia, Tanzania and Kenya, we expect 325.000 young people to benefit.

Stepped Care Model for Sexual Health

With over 10 years of success in the Netherlands, the innovative self-care model has expanded to South Africa, Kenya, Mozambique and Indonesia. We convene government, academia, civil society and others and co-create evidence-based SRHR content together with young people, all centred around engaging youth brands.

How else do we shift the power?
