Health Advocacy encompasses activities that promote health and access to healthcare in communities and the greater public. A health advocate is required to support and promote the rights of patients in healthcare settings, help build capacity to improve community health and enhance health policy initiatives focused on availability of safe, effective and quality healthcare services.
Through our health advocacy program we work with corporate partners, communities, patient support groups and government agencies to address health system challenges for improved access to quality healthcare services and health outcomes. To achieve this we are involved in operational health research, health communication, community engagement, policy development and strategic operations with a focus on:
- Mental Health
- Non Communicable Diseases
- Neglected Tropical Diseases
- Reproductive Health
- Health Systems Strengthening
YouTH Voices Network
The median age of most African countries including Kenya is 19 years. With a youthful population, the continent has tremendous potential in human resource capabilities encompassing physical strength, ingenuity and creativity. In order to tap into this potential, there’s a need to build competencies in the youth, offer them a platform to manifest their capabilities and launch into the world to drive meaningful change.
Our YouTH Voices Network works to enlighten, empower and evoke action from the youth for social development through skills development, coaching and strategic support.
We work with youth-led organizations and youth leaders who have identified challenges in their communities, are keen to tackle them and need support through the process in line with our strategic focus areas in the healthcare space.
