Your support has made it possible for teens of all abilities to get access to information to make informed choices about their health. 

According to a report by the UN's Department of Social and Economic Affairs, young people and adults with disabilities are at equal or greater risk of unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections due to amplified barriers to accessing necessary services.  

Our Access without Barriers program, in Mozambique, educates teens of all abilities about health, especially sexual health. The program also equips media, service providers and other stakeholders for more effective communication with adolescents of all abilities. 

The program includes a radio drama whose storylines are tailored to what listeners experience in day-to-day life and help them build safe and informed health behaviors. Programming is inclusive of a wide range of disabilities, from physical to mental health, and the content we produce speaks to those unique complexities. 

Your support has provided outcomes that include: 

  • 83% of teens surveyed report increased understanding of contraception, STI testing, and other sexual and reproductive health practices 
  • 530% increase in young people with disabilities accessing health facilities 
  • Increase in service program knowledge about discussing health topics with teens  

One listener shared, “My partner and I started using pregnancy prevention methods that we didn't use before, and now we feel good that no one is at risk of being a parent before we're psychologically and financially prepared.”  

        -Daniel, Radio Program Listener, Tete, Mozambique 

Having access to Information about sexual health and family planning enables women to make informed choices for themselves and the health of their family. This gives their children the opportunity to live longer and healthier lives – well beyond their 5th birthday. 

Thank you for your ongoing support that allows us to work in local communities to produce quality and engaging content that supports a healthier, more sustainable, and just world.
