Adolescent services were issued to youth 10-24 years. Some of the services offered to the youth included HIV screening and testing. We tested 53 youths both male and female. In addition, 4 youth attending the antenatal 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 youth received antiretrovirals during this quarter. In addition, screening for malnutrition was done and two youth were assessed.
A total of 8 girls attended antenatal care and one had a normal delivery. Mothers that accessed the first antenatal visit were five and those who had attended at least four visits were only one person.
Family planning is another service sought by our youth. A total of 27 youths accessed different family planning options including short- and long-term methods.
A success story of youthful mothers identified with children with cerebral palsy. These women were organized into groups for peer support while they look after their children suffering from cerebral palsy. They meet biweekly and learn how to deal with children with various forms of cerebral palsy. These groups have enabled mothers to form their community and also allow them to associate and also participate in rehabilitative services together making their lives easier when shared. We have three groups with youthful parents that have been formed in the Kawempe division.
