Young women and girls living with HIV are more vulnerable to SGBV and due to unequal gender power relations within their relationships with intimate partners, they are often unable to exercise their SRHR
SRHR service provision is critical for young peoples well-being to avoid unintended pregnancies, STI infections and above all, reduce HIV infections. Although this remains in principle, barriers are still in existence especially for girls limiting their access information, service and safe spaces to air their concerns and propose solutions moreso during this COVID 19 induced lockdown period.
