Health Care Provider (HCP) Advocacy

Advocacy is the process of increasing support and building a favourable environment for a particular issue/need –
……In this case: Advancing sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of adolescents and young people

HCPs advocacy for AYP can:

  • Improve access to health care services for HIV, SRHR (availability, packages of services, linkages/referrals)
  • Increase meaningful AYP participation in service awareness and use, for preventative, curative and chronic care
  • Ensure the rights of all clients are observed (inclusive and diversity)
