Activity; Improving Access to SRHR Services in Nansana

With Financial Support from WGNRR – Africa, TAHI and UYP under the You CAN project successfully organized and conducted a workshop aimed at enhancing the provision of inclusive and youth-friendly Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) services among health workers in  Nansana, Uganda.  This activity was designed to address the pressing need for improved accessibility to contraception and post-abortion care within the community.

The primary objective of the workshop was to equip health workers with the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver SRHR services that are inclusive, youth-friendly, and responsive to the needs of the community. Special emphasis was placed on enhancing accessibility to contraception and post-abortion care services, thereby contributing to the overall well-being and empowerment of individuals, especially young people. A total of 20 health workers from various healthcare facilities in Nansana participated in the workshop. These participants were carefully selected based on their roles and responsibilities within the healthcare system, ensuring a diverse representation from different levels of service delivery.

Following the workshop, participants reported a significant improvement in their ability to provide inclusive and youth-friendly SRHR services. They expressed confidence in addressing the diverse needs of clients, particularly young people, and ensuring their access to accurate information and quality care. Several participants shared stories of challenging societal norms and overcoming personal biases to deliver non-judgmental and supportive care to individuals seeking SRHR services.
