Operation Triple Zero: Empowering Adolescents and Young People Living with HIV to Take Control of Their Health in Kenya

In Kenya, adolescents and young people living with HIV (AYPLHIV) account for approximately 20% (303,700) of all people living with HIV (Spectrum Estimates, 2015; Kenya HIV Estimates 2015 Report). AYPLHIV (aged 10-24 years) face especially complex challenges dealing with a chronic illness amidst the physical, emotional and psychological developmental changes of transitioning from childhood to adulthood. The Operation Triple Zero (OTZ) initiative engages AYPLHIV as active stakeholders and partners in their health by promoting a responsive service delivery model.
