Mobile Health Truck to Sustain Girls' SRH Access

Summary

By creating an adolescent-friendly space for sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services in the form of an ice-cream mobile truck, 33, 838 girls in Cameroon accessed their unmet SRH needs over the past 24 months. The truck is now bad and needs your donations to quickly replace it. In Cameroon, 13% of adolescent girls aged 15-19 get pregnant, and 4.4% get infected by HIV. We are quickly reserving the trends, and together we can do more.

Challenge

13 in 100 girls aged 15-19 get pregnant against their wishes and 4.4% of the target population is infected by HIV. Unfortunately, political and social barriers limit access to SRH services for adolescents girls.

Solution

By creating an adolescent-friendly space for SRH services in the likeness of an ice-cream truck, girls now satisfy their SRH needs without fear, stigma, discrimination of coercion. The ice-cream truck which connotes open happiness moves into the communities daily: and was able to reach 33,838 girls aged 11-24 years in the past 24 months.

Long-Term Impact

A minimum of 15,000 girls is targeted each year, as unwanted pregnancies and new HIV infections are continually averted.
