Gender-transformative approaches to improving youth SRHR

Improving the sexual and reproductive health and rights of young people in Kenya by training healthcare providers in the GTA

This report presents the findings of operational research with healthcare providers who offer youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health services to young people in six counties in Kenya. The focus of the study was gender transformative training for healthcare providers. Could we understand the effects of the training on their gender and sexuality-related attitudes and beliefs and on the quality and inclusiveness of the sexual and reproductive health services they provide to young people, especially women and girls?

This study was part of the Get Up Speak Out (GUSO) programme, that focuses on young people’s access to and utilisation of comprehensive sexual and reproductive health and rights education and services, as well as on improving and creating a supportive environment for their sexual and reproductive health and rights. GUSO is implemented in seven countries in Africa and Asia; Kenya is one of those countries, where the programme is implemented by the Kenya SRHR Alliance.
