Health and outreaches

Health is a major issue among women & young people due to the prevalence of external factors like the HIV/AIDS and drug abuse, which are rarely addressed.  Moreover, many youth and women are dying out of ignorance for lack of information on predators like HIV/AIDs, and there is a need for specific attention towards the education of women & young people on the dangers of the disease and other similar ailments.

Specific Objectives

  • Create awareness on HIV/AIDS and other Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI), abortion, family planning and other health issues.
  • Conduct peer education in schools, youth groups and women organizations.
  • Set up a resource center where health information and other useful information can be easily accessed.
  • Reduce social stigmas and prejudice resulting from cultural stereotypes held by the society towards women.
