Our Programs

ADVOCACY

LPPA  advocates for policy and legal reforms that respect and protect the rights of individuals to access SRH services without fear of intimidation and discrimination. LPPA  persuades government to formulate policies and enact laws that provide an enabling environment for SRHR. LPPA also advocates for increased resources to support SRHR from government, donors and development partners.

LPPA strives to empower groups of youth, women and men to act as agents of change in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights. Young people, women and men will actively articulate and advocate for their rights. Young people, women and men will be knowledgeable about their sexual rights and  translate this into a change in their behaviours. Social, economic, legal and cultural barriers commonly impacting negatively on these groups will be reduced resulting in increased uptake of SRH services.

Access to quality integrated sexual and reproductive health services 

LPPA has adopted a more sensitive programming that respects diversity in terms of age, gender, economic, social, cultural, political and religious differences, and increased involvement of other service agencies; increased utilization of integrated Sexual and Reproductive Health services and reduced cases of Gender-Based Violence, reduced new HIV infections, increased uptake of contraceptives and condoms, and, reduced maternal and infant mortality. In addition, LPPA works towards reduced cases of unwanted pregnancy, reduced cases of unsafe abortion, and reduced number of  new Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs).

For a period of 5 years, LPPA aims to deliver 600,000 non-discriminatory, rights based and free integrated services annually to youth, women and men by 2020. LPPA aims to expand service delivery by increasing its geographical coverage; strengthen its rights-based approach and scale up integrated services through various modes. These will include, outreach, community based distribution, mobile services, and support other agencies operating in other districts.
