Health education is one of the many intervention strategies SWOP-Kenya has adopted for implementing health promotion and disease prevention among the communities within its seven facilities operational jurisdiction. It provides learning experiences on various health topics among the community members i.e. both at the facility and community levels.
Health education strategies are tailored for their appropriate target population, for instance; HIV prevention strategies as a health education topic would be deemed fit for adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) etc. Health education presents information to target populations on particular health topics, including the health benefits/threats they face, and provides tools to build capacity and support behaviour change in an appropriate setting. In summary Health education is aimed at accelerating positive behaviour change.
