Reaching adolescents and youth with integrated SRHR services through community outreaches in Northern Uganda

Young people (10-24 years) in Uganda face many sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR) challenges stemming from early, unprotected and forced sexual activity. An underlying factor to this is limited access to youth-friendly SRHR information and services, which impact on young people’s ability to make informed and healthy life choices. Especially in many rural areas of Uganda, the provision and uptake of quality adolescent SRHR services remains low. A strategic intervention of the UNFPA Uganda programmes is the integrated SRHR community outreaches specifi cally targeting hard-to-reach adolescents and youth in host and refugee settings in Northern Uganda.
