Innovation Description

Youth in Uganda face many Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) risks such as unmet need for contraception, which leads to unplanned pregnancies that result in unsafe abortions and sexually transmitted infections. However, awareness and uptake of SRH services among the youth remains sub-optimal. Challenges to the provision of SRH services include lack of privacy and confidentiality, financial barriers, and knowledge gaps. Innovative solutions are critical to addressing these challenges.
