Improving Health and Social Outcomes for Pregnant Adolescents, Adolescent Mothers, and Their Infants in Kenya— Jielimishe Uzazi na Afya Program Final Report

The Jielimishe Uzazi na Afya (JUA) program (2017–2019) is an innovative home visiting, case management intervention to improve health and social outcomes for pregnant adolescents and adolescent mothers (10–19 years) and their infants (0–2 years). The JUA program helped achieve elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV among program beneficiaries, having ensured that 100 percent of beneficiary adolescents living with HIV were initiated on antiretroviral therapy (ART); 94 percent of beneficiaries achieved viral suppression. Overall, the achievements of AIDSFree’s JUA program demonstrate how important it is to consider a girls’ entire environment—peers, family, school, health care, and community—when supporting her through her pregnancy, delivery, and successful early motherhood.
