Self-care for health cannot be seen in isolation of the strengthening of health systems and the removal of barriers to health services. For Universal Health Coverage (UHC) to
be achieved, the human rights dimension of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and health services must be prioritised in the UHC agenda. This will ensure appropriate service delivery and the promotion and protection of human rights, which go hand in hand.
These reports were funding by Aidsfonds and developed by The African Alliance, which includes series of policy analyses for Kenya, Malawi, Uganda, Tanzania and Zambia to understand better why self-care is critical to improve the SRHR needs of adolescents and young people and achieve universal health coverage. The analyses assessed the policy landscape, lived experiences around UHC, SRHR and self-care; and the current limitations young people face in accessing the services they need.
