Adolescent Report Quarter One

By Ruth Nakalembe | Livelihood officer

 A total number of 24 outreaches and in-reaches were carried out. Adolescent services were issued to 500 (340F,160M) adolescents 10-19 years. Some of the services offered to these adolescents included HIV testing and counseling. We tested 53 youths both male and female and they got to know their HIV status. This is essential in the efforts to end HIV/AIDS among the youths they learn to protect themselves from to prevent further infections.

In addition, 26 pregnant youths who were attending the antenatal Clinic were also tested for HIV. One patient accessed prophylaxis exposure prevention for HIV following a blood splash. This youth received treatment to prevent them from contracting HIV disease. A total of three youths received antiretrovirals during this quarter from CFU medical center. In addition, screening for malnutrition was done and all the youth were assessed to know their nutrition status using Body Mass Index (BMI) and BMI for Age. They had a normal nutrition status.

 

A total of 26 adolescent girls attended antenatal care as supported by CFU. After the ANC visits, 5 of these mothers gave birth at CFU medical center. Ie two had a normal delivery and 3 had a caesarian. Mothers that accessed the first antenatal visit in the first trimester were five and those who had attended at least four visits were only 6 persons.

 

Family planning is another service sought by our youth.  A total of 127 youths accessed different family planning options including short- and long-term methods.
