Through the Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH)/HIV/AIDS Program PeerLink works to equip youth with knowledge and skills to enable them cope with sexual reproductive health challenges/challenges related to growth and development. This is done through enhancing the capacity of education stakeholders (school administration and management, teachers), parents/care takers to provide sexual reproductive health education and supportive environment for children and youth in schools, communities and in households.
Through this program health service providers are also trained to deliver youth friendly services. The capacity of PELI-U staff and volunteers to deliver quality sexual reproductive health education and linkage to service provision is enhanced.
Activities under this program include SRH dialogue sessions with school administrators and management, dialogue sessions with parents and health workers, strengthening the youth corner, radio based SRH sensitization sessions and SRH training workshops for teachers. SRH sensitization seminars for in and out of school youth, training peer educators, organising a youth health camp, training in making of reusable sanitary pads are also held. PELI-U staff and volunteers are trained in SRH, child protection and sexual and gender based violence prevention and management.
