“We want the unmet need in Uganda to drop to zero. At the Ministry of Health we will champion sexual reproductive health issues for young people. As young people your health is in your hands, your future lies in the decisions you make today. Our interest is to ensure that we do not see children being born in this country by chance but children being born by choice.” @SarahOpendi


UNFPA Executive Director (Dr. Babatunde), Hon. Sarah Opendi and Dr. Jotham Musinguzi discuss with young people how to make access to Sexual and Reproductive Health Services a reality.


#askSRH4YP@BabatundeUNFPA: “The young people of this generation are the most connected!

I wish you could be more aggressive in your pursuit of sexual reproductive health information and services. I challenge every young person to make an effort to reach at least one other rural young person and advocate and insist for age appropriate sexuality education and access to SRH services.”

#askSRH4YP@BabatundeUNFPA: “No culture or society that I know of would condone the death of its young people through teenage pregnancy and other complications by denying them access to comprehensive sexuality education and sexual reproductive health services.”
