Programme Approach



Zana Africa has created an innovative rights-based menstrual and reproductive health and rights education (MRHE) in the form of a referable health magazine called Nia Teen, designed for behavior change, and to improve the health and agency of adolescent girls living in the deepest pockets of economic and informational poverty. Additionally, they have a corresponding 24-session facilitated health education curriculum adapted from the Adolescent Reproductive Health and Life Skills Curriculum, from Tuko Pamoja called Nia Yetu (or “Our Purpose”).
