POLICY ADVOCACY

ADVOCACY APPROACH ON;
1. HEALTH PROMOTION
• Develop and produce evidence to influence responsive policies
• Lobby for structural/legislative/policy adjustments to ensure responsive services

2. SOCIAL & ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT
• Amplify voices to reduce rates of stigma and discrimination
• Produce and share lessons that will facilitate bridge building between GSM and the general population
• Sensitize religious, and cultural leaders, legislators and private sector actors to advocate for inclusivity

3. INSTITUTIONAL STRENGTHENING
• Develop an institutional advocacy strategy that will guide how PEMA-K conducts its advocacy work
• Lobby for policy improvements that will favour the growth of the public benefit/CSO sector

POLICY ADVOCACY: As a cross-cutting theme, work with stakeholders to identify barriers to access and a levelized environment for inclusivity.
