A Consultant to co-create a module on Adolescent sexual and Reproductive Health Rights



Access to health is a fundamental human right as outlined in Article 43 (1) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 which states that: Every person has the right-to the highest attainable standard of health, which includes the right to health care services, including reproductive health care; Despite this provision in the law, women and girls with disabilities in Kenya, still face numerous challenges in access to sexual and reproductive health. The myths and misconceptions attached to their sexuality often hinders them from acquiring quality sexual and reproductive health services, they are denied the right to express their sexuality through forced and arranged marriages, forced sterilization, forced and unsafe abortion as well as denial of sexual and reproductive health information and education which creates a gap in their health and increases the susceptibility of untreated sexual and reproductive health illnesses.

Problem Statement

According to the Ministry of Health, Kenya has made significant milestones in the fight against early pregnancies, HIV/Aids and Gender Based violence against adolescents and teenage girls. Cases of teenage pregnancies reduced from. 427,135 to 317,644 between 2018 and 2021. The Rate of HIV infections among adolescent girls also reduced from 343 girls weekly in 2015 to 98 cases per week in 2021. However, teenage pregnancy remains an ongoing concern for the nation.   Kenya has the 3rd highest teen pregnancies worldwide where one in every five adolescents aged 15 -19 are already mothers or pregnant according to the Health conference held in Mombasa early this year. Young girls with disabilities often face increased violence, notably sexual violence mostly perpetrated by their caregivers, strangers and family. Early pregnancies increase health risks for adolescents, especially young girls with disabilities.

Project Goal

We Lead is a program that aims to improve the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRH-R) of young women with special focus on four specific groups of young women: those living with HIV, those with disabilities, those who identify as lesbian, bisexual, trans or intersex, (LGBTI) and those affected by displacement for one reason or another  The youthful population age 15-34 account for 36% of the country’s total population. However, despite their huge numbers and the relatively enabling reproductive health policy environment in Kenya, young people still experience immense challenges in accessing information and services on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRH-R).
