3 Things That Your Donation Do For The Mobile Ques
By Eno-obong Ekwere - Project Manager
Helping youths make healthy decisions
The COVID-19 pandemic has been very challenging and may gradually reverse the gains and progress that have been made towards achieving quality sexual and reproductive health for young people. Young people in Nigeria may experience difficulty accessing health services because they may not be able to visit health facilities due to the pandemic. The high cost of transportation and the distance of the health facility may also pose a challenge. Other challenges are the cost of accessing services and poor financial/economic status. Through the Mobile Question and Answer Service, we are closing the gap using innovative technology to ensure that young people’s SRH needs are met on their terms. Your donations have helped us this far and will continue to help us sustain the service by
1. Keeping the SMS free. According to the 2018 Nigeria Demographic Health Survey NDHS, the median age of sexual initiation among women is about 17 years. The MyQ and A service ensure that young people get factual information about staying safe and playing safe by ensuring that AYP can ask SRH questions for free. Through your donations that keep the MyQ&A service young people can receive information at no cost to them.
2. Making phone calls free. The MyQ&A hotline will remain free through your support. Young people can call and speak with a counsellor at no cost to them to get all the factual and non-judgemental information to make healthy choices
3. Training and supporting a counsellor to respond to sexual and reproductive health questions of young people. Your donations have supported and will continue to support the service to strengthen the capacity of counsellors to provide confidential information to young people.
