Summary

The project plans to identify and support teenage mothers who are at risk of unsafe deliveries. The project will also track infants and children at great risk of poor access to health services and malnutrition in identified sub counties in Lira, Apac and Amolatar districts in Northern Uganda. The project targets especially the first time teenage mothers who are extremely vulnerable and usually fail to attend antenatal care which complicates their deliveries and postnatal circumstances.

Challenge

Many people from Acholi and Lango sub- regions were displaced and confined in IDP camps and faced many challenges. To date Northern Uganda is exposed to Teenage pregnancies and poor access to antenatal & many public health challenges associated with the post war situation including HIV/AIDS & other STIs; Malaria; Malnutrition; Tetanus; Diphtheria; Nodding disease Syndrome etc. Northern Uganda has an HIV prevalence rate of over 11.9% which is the highest in Uganda (ACP-HIV serosurveilence 2002).

Solution

The program will address maternal & child/infant care in teenage girls, HIV prevention among young women, and problem of poor access to ART which is complicated by underlying factors in distribution, adherence and administration. The gaps in public education about patient access to treatments, rights of patients and matters of stigma will be addressed through this program. HORARD MEDucate project will be implemented through our established women and youth groups.

Long-Term Impact

Young teenage mothers, Infants, Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC), other marginalized/disadvantaged Young people, People Living with HIV/AIDS (PHAs) and rural community educated and empowered with skills and resources to lead healthy, self reliant lives and to become agents of change in their communities. Young mothers empowered to have safe deliveries, support most at risk young mothers and infants/children in their communities.
