This project will create a collaborative community-based learning platform to support dialogue, exchange and capacity strengthening on gender-transformative approaches in adolescent and young people’s sexual and reproductive health rights and services. The platform builds on a multi-sectoral program called “My Journey”, which delivers comprehensive biomedical, behavioural and structural support and services to adolescent girls and boys aged 10-24 in South Africa.
Led by SOPH with NACOSA, we will combine engaged scholarship with civil society mobilization to support the learning platform. Other key partners include the Western Cape Department of Health and Wellness, implementing CBOs, and the adolescent and young people who are at the center of NACOSA’s programs.
