Knowledge SUCCESS loves feedback from our readers. We want to hear how our resources benefit your work, how we can improve, and your ideas for the site. Recently, you’ve mentioned wanting more insights specific to your countries and the context you work in. Say no more! We’ll be featuring organizations working at the national level in a series called “FP/RH Champion Spotlight.” Our goal is to spark new partnerships and give well-deserved credit to those advancing family planning and reproductive health with a regional focus.
This week, our featured organization is Uganda Youth Alliance for Family Planning and Adolescent Health (UYAFPAH).
Uganda Youth Alliance for Family Planning and Adolescent Health (UYAFPAH)
The Uganda Youth Alliance for Family Planning and Adolescent Health’s (UYAFPAH) primary mission is advocating for positive change in health matters that affect young people in Uganda.
We educate young people on issues to do with behavioral change, menstrual hygiene, sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), family planning, HIV and other STIs, and hepatitis B. We hold capacity-building trainings on livelihood skills, economic empowerment, and self-awareness.
UYAFPAH promotes high-quality, high-impact, and gender-sensitive SRHR information for the most vulnerable and most at- risk populations of young people (10-35 years) in Uganda through capacity strengthening, issue-specific advocacy, and strategic partnerships for community and school dialogues. We aim to improve access to and the acceptability of family planning and reproductive health services for adolescents and youth by using a human-rights based approach.
