Unite for Body Rights (UFBR) 2010-2015 Program

The aim of the Unite for Body Rights (UFBR) 2010-2015 Program was to work towards a society free of poverty in which all women and men, girls and boys, and marginalized groups were able to make a safe and informed decision on sexual and reproductive health and rights irrespective of their ethnic, cultural and religious background, age, gender, and sexual orientation. The programme targeted young people (aged 10–24 years)

The specific project objectives included:

  • Increase the use of contraceptives, also among young people;

  • Increase use and quality of mother-and child care services;

  • Improvement of quality and range of sexuality education, in and out of school;

  • Combat (sexual) violence against women;

  • Increase acceptance of different sexual orientations.

The program was implemented by 7 member Organizations within the Alliance namely: Africa Alive!; African Medical and Research foundation (AMREF)-Kenya known as now AMREF health Africa, Center for the Study of Adolescence (CSA), The Great Lakes University of Kisumu (GLUK), Nairobits Trust, Network of Adolescents and Youth of Africa (NAYA) Kenya and Support Activities in Poverty Eradication and Health (SAIPEH).

The specific project objectives included:

  • To increase demand for and access to quality Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) services

  • To increase the quality and delivery of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE)

  • To reduce incidences of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV)

  • To increase acceptance of sexual diversity and gender identity

Strategies and process of change 

The UFBR programme combined three strategies: 

  • Improving access to and the quality of SRHR education (increasing SRHR demand); 

  • Improving access to and the quality of SRH services (increasing SRH supply); and 

  • Improving the enabling environment (increasing SRHR support).

The Alliance’s Theory of Change (ToC) is based on the conviction of this multi-component approach: all components (supply, demand and an enabling environment) need to be addressed to be most effective in realizing results.

Through ASK and UFBR programs, the voice of partners on the SRHR agenda were enhanced tremendously both at National and County levels; organizational capacity of partners in different areas of SRHR programming were built and strengthened and the programs increased synergy and collaboration among partner CSOs leading to greater community reach. 

Both GUSO and the AmplifyChange programmes were based on the lessons learnt and findings of the outcome measurements of the ASK 2013-2015 and UFBR 2010-2015 programs. As an Alliance, it is our hope that current and future programs will ride on the structures created by ASK and UFBR programs towards the realization of SRHR for young people especially adolescent girls, young women and vulnerable groups  in Kenya and beyond.
