Edutainment and Informative Performance Arts (EIPA) approach
Short skits, participatory theater, poems, dance narratives and flash mobs for community awareness and sensitization through interactive, participatory and fun sessions. EIPA provides a safe and supportive environment for young people to access youth Reproductive friendly services.
Business and Entrepreneurship Training, Mentorship and Coaching.
PHAU trains young people and women in small business management skills, financial literacy, booking keeping and linking them to financial institutions. Economic empowerment enables young people to be job creators than job seekers hence increasing income levels at house hold levels. This is done through creating micro saving programs, income generating groups, business dialogues and forums.
This uses the multiplier effect of increasing information flow from one person to another. PHAU trains peer educators to use EIPA approach in empowering adolescents and youths in issues of SRH. Young people relate better with each other hence they are able to share experiences, hold discussions and debates on thematic topics. The trained peer educators then form Peer Health Teams (PHTs) that reach out other adolescents and youths within schools and communities.
ICT for Health
PHAU has embraced the use of ICT in increasing access to SRH information and services. This is done through use of various social media platforms where young people like, follow, share and comment on various thematic topics. They are engaged with case scenarios, short videos, photos with hash-tags(#) SRH messages. PHAU has over 50,000 followers on Face book, Twitter, Google plus, Instagram, Linked In and Flicker.
