About the project

The project aims to enhance awareness of reproductive health rights, services to adolescent girls & young women to undertake intensive educational activities on the use of modern contraceptives to protect against STIs, unwanted pregnancies among 600 women 2600 in-out of school girls in Arapai sub-county Soroti district  using youth friendly services, Rights Based approach, focus groups, Adult-centered learning, Peer-to-Peer, Outreaches, table talks, Film & Health Education Talks.

Increased access, use of antenatal and postnatal services by 20% & the number of youths receiving SRH services increase by 15% by Dec 2021. Created and strengthened a multi-stakeholder local platform, referral network to advance dissemination of information & access to SRH services by the end of the project. The sustainability is guaranteed as the project will use already existing structures in the communities, build the capacity of the community to sustain the services provided by this project.

According to the latest projections, some 47 million women may be unable to use modern contraceptives if the lockdown carries on for six months. This means up to 7 million unintended pregnancies, with thousands of young lives at risk. Also predicted is an increase in female genital mutilation cases by 2 million.

First, we are seeing resources redirected away from vital sexual and reproductive health and rights services in favour of other COVID-related responses. We know from past epidemics that a lack of access to essential health services due to a shutdown of services can ultimately cause more deaths than the epidemic itself. Difficulty accessing contraceptives and other essential services such as safe abortion denies millions of girls and women the right to control their bodies and lives.
