How faith promotes FP and youth reproductive health in its spaces and mediums

As religion is an essential part of the sociocultural fabric of many communities, religious leaders use their social capital in support of family planning and healthy youth sexuality. In this session, religious leaders from different faiths, ages and genders in Kenya will share how they help shape norms on family planning and young people’s reproductive health in their communities. The religious leaders will showcase lessons learned on promoting healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies through spaces and mediums of their respective faiths at the local level in Kenya. The session is convened by National Independent Churches of Africa, West Pokot Gospel Music Artists and Muslim Intervention for Health Education, and moderated by Faith to Action Network.
