Nairobi residents will today have an event set to sensitize them on social challenges fueling teen pregnancies, gender-based violence and new HIV infections among the youth.
The sensitization programme dubbed the ‘Triple Threat’ by the National AIDS Control Council (NACC), in partnership with the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government, National Council for Population Development, and the Nairobi Metropolitan will be graced by Health Principal Secretary Susan Mochache at the Mathare Youth Sports Association Grounds.
With the continuous increase of teen age pregnancies and HIV infections among the youth in semi urban settlements, the media will also have an opportunity to interview case studies and interrogate the status of the country’s HIV response and the Triple Threat campaign that aims at achieving education, health, and empowerment plus for young girls at risk of Teenage Pregnancies, Gender-Based Violence, and New HIV Infections.
The event will also be attended by Nairobi Governor Ann Kananu Mwenda, Women Rep Esther Passaris, Flora Mworoa- Nairobi County Commissioner and NMS Director General Mohamed Badi.
