NGO with a focus on HIV prevention and GBV

SHOUT-IT-NOW believes in a world where youth are empowered to make the best choices for their own health and wellbeing.


SHOUT-IT-NOW uses innovative social behaviour change approaches to effectively engage youth and create demand for our health and wellbeing services. We offer a range of health services, currently focused on sexual and reproductive health, via a variety of convenient channels, primarily mobile vans. We also aim to connect youth via referrals and linkages to a range of other health and wellbeing services, including behavioural and livelihoods programs that are offered through partners. Custom technology enables SHOUT-IT-NOW to effectively use real-time data to generate insights and inform our program design—our youth engagement, communications and service delivery strategies—and to give youth easy access to programs offered by our ecosystem partners. Importantly, we take a client-centred peer-lead approach, involving youth in all aspects of our work.
