Kenya AIDS strategic framework (KASF) 2014/15-2018/19 identifies adolescents and young people (AYP) as a priority population for the HIV response. Previously adolescents and young people did not realize benefits commensurate with the significant investments made in the provision of HIV services, including prevention care and treatment, despite many programmatic & political commitments.

Attainment of Kenya’s Vision 2030 and Africa’s goals as espoused in Vision 2063, ‘Africa Rising’, is dependent on harnessing dividends from the youth population.
