about us

INTRODUCTION


The current Strategic Plan (2016-2020) represents a roadmap that the association intends to follow over the next five years in addressing the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) situation, including HIV in the country. The plan aligns itself with IPPF Strategic Framework (2016-2022), while responding to the national SRHR and geopolitical, economic and social realities, which define the context in which LPPA will strive to achieve its vision; “A healthy and inclusive society where freedom of choice in Sexual, Reproductive Health and Rights, and equal opportunities are guaranteed for all”. 

The development of the 4th Strategic Plan is a collaborative and participatory effort of LPPA staff, volunteers and partners. Firstly, the current strategic plan was informed by the review of the 3rd strategic plan which provided valuable information that formed the basis for its development. Secondly, the document benefited from consultations, suggestions and contributions of all those who participated in the Strategic Planning Workshop. Further inputs were received subsequent to the workshop that helped to refine the document.

This Strategic Plan articulates the strategic identity of LPPA which includes a vision, a mission statement and a set of values. These three elements outline why LPPA exists, what it intends to achieve and how it does its work.

VISION STATEMENT


Our vision is a healthy society with a zero infection rate of HIV, where every person can exercise their right to dignity.  A society where there is universal access to quality sexual and reproductive health information and services free from fear, stigma, discrimination and any other barriers; and where young people grow to enjoy their youth, fully participate in the control of their destiny and are able to make informed decisions.
