Young Health Programme Formative Study
Plan is an international child-centred community development organization without political, religious or governmental affiliations.
Plan’s vision is of a world in which all children realize their full potential in societies that respect people’s rights and dignity.
Plan’s mission is to strive to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of deprived children in developing countries, through a process that unites people across cultures and adds meaning and value to their lives.
Plan International Kenya together with Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team (AMURT) are implementing a five-year project (2016 – 2020), Young Health Programme (YHP), in the urban informal settlement of Kibera, in Nairobi County, Kenya.
The project aims to contribute to improved health and gender equality of girls and boys between 10-24 years of age in Kibera, Nairobi.
The programme is to contribute to improved health and gender equality of girls and boys between 10-24 years of age in Kibera, Nairobi.
Specifically, it aims to achieve this by ensuring that adolescent girls and boys in the urban slum of Kibera, Nairobi are practising fewer risky behaviours due to an increased capacity to make informed choices and to protect their health, now and in the future.
Specifically, the YHP will focus on 5 risk behaviours which significantly increase the likelihood of developing NCDs later in life, which are
1) tobacco use;
2) harmful use of alcohol;
3) risky sexual behaviours;
4) physical inactivity; and
5) unhealthy diets.
