Title: Support for the Health Needs of Adolescents in Uganda

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown of the country in order to control the spread the of the virus, we are super excited to share what CFU has been up to on supporting the health needs of adolescents in the Kamuli district https://goto.gg/50405. We set up a youth corner within the CFU Kamuli facility, where youth come in every week and discuss health topics that concern them. These discussion topics are identified by the youth with guidance from the CFU staff team. The adolescents received health education and guidance on various topics including menstrual health and hygiene, teenage pregnancy and its associated health risks, how to keep safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, some youth sought medical support as shown in the graph attached. We reached 86 adolescents and youths during the quarter and were provided with both health education and medical treatments.

We seek donations for our project https://goto.gg/50405 to help raise pads for girls and young women in Kamuli since this was identified as one of the main reasons girls get pregnant. Luck of pads among the girls and women exposes them to several risks including asking young men to support their menstrual hygiene. This goes without saying that the young boys take this as an opportunity to introduce sexual advances and hence abuse and the resultant teenage pregnancy.


Special thanks to our donors across the globe on the GlobalGiving platform without such support, these interventions would not have been possible. Thank you to the CFU team and the adolescents who are up taking our services.
