Sensitization OF WWUDs On SRHR and GBV

Sharing of Sexual Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR) information is essential to women especially our community of Women Who Use drugs (WWUDs). Majority of Women and girls in Kenya lack access to comprehensive information on SRHR despite the country’s constitutional framework guaranteeing reproductive health and access to such information. Lack of information therefore has contributed to low uptake of contraceptives, increased rates of unintended pregnancies and increased incidences of HIV, STI, Sexual and Gender Based Violence including rape and sexual exploitation.

WWUDs usually lack information on SRHR but through our sensitization of WWUDs on SRHR and GBV program, we have been able to share comprehensive information and knowledge about personal hygiene, menstruation, contraception, sexual and gender based violence and reproductive rights. With these information Women Who Use Drugs have been able to access safe, affordable and effective methods of contraception which provides them with opportunities to make informed decisions about their lives.
