The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) supports the South African government’s implementation of interventions to address Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) and HIV prevention for adolescents and youth aged 10 to 24 under the banner of the “Safeguard Young People in South Africa Programme” (SYP).
To promote this work, UNFPA sub-contracted DramAidE (Drama in AIDS Education), a non-profit organisation based in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) to work with Mnambithi TVET College students and staff and health care workers from UThukela District Department of Health (DOH) to conduct a rapid assessment of the status of the peer education programme on three of the college’s campuses and to establish whether the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services provided by the Department of Health are adolescent and youth friendly, guided by the 10 national standards for Adolescent and Youth Friendly Services (AYFS).
