In conjunction with the SDGs, Value Health Africa (VAHA) seeks to empower young women, youth and children to overcome sexual and reproductive health threats by increasing their access to better quality health education and care. Thus, VAHA helps target communities and households to identify and address their health challenges through sensitization, education and support with respect to national and international expectations.

- Fostering partnerships with local and traditional leaders for effective health advocacy, consolidation and uptake of responsible sexual and reproductive health practices for women and young girls in local communities and;
- Encouraging an alliance or network of community health educators and volunteers as "task forces" to consolidate the bridge between the rapid provision of health care services and local communities for improved access to health.
