Discover 2: Understanding Kenya

In the second stage of Discover, the Core Kenya team looked to understand the role played by gender-based dynamics in family planning behaviour. 

Working directly with young women and their communities in Kiambu and Kajiado counties, the team developed a gendered lens framework with which to make sense of the data gathered during the first stage of Discover. With this lens they were able to better understand how the life course is defined in terms of the progression of one’s gender identity, as well as how the social expectations of what it means to be male or female impact sexual and reproductive health behaviours of both men and women.
