Health and Wellbeing

We strengthen the health and social and emotional wellbeing of the most vulnerable children living with and at risk of HIV

We strengthen the social and emotional wellbeing of the most vulnerable children and young people living with, or at risk of HIV by addressing their basic mental health with psychosocial support, information sharing and providing access to youth-friendly health services.

We deliver information to children and young people so they can make informed decisions regarding their health and wellbeing. This includes working with our partners to provide sexual and reproductive health and rights education, HIV testing and counselling services, access to HIV medication, HIV referral and retention treatment programmes and basic mental health and wellbeing support.

Our ways of working include face-to-face peer-led group sessions at local healthcare facilities and at the Mamohato Children’s Centre Lesotho, and more recently radio shows, information sharing through social media groups, and via mobile networks.

“We believe in youth-friendly health services which are free of stigma and discrimination”
