Abstract

This document is a review and revision of the National Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health Policy of Kenya, which involved in-depth consultations with a wide range of stakeholders through literature review, interviews, consultative meetings, and reviews of the various drafts. Many changes took place at the national and international levels that needed to be taken into account as the policy was reviewed, including the Constitution of Kenya (2010) with its attendant devolved governance structure as well as demographics, and social, economic, and technological environment. The government has made concerted efforts as part of Vision 2030 to respond to adolescents and young people by providing opportunities for economic development and skills building. This policy aims to enhance the sexual and reproductive health status of adolescents in Kenya and contribute toward realization of their full potential in national development. The policy intends to bring adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights issues into the country’s mainstream health and development agenda.
