Seeding Priorities

Sexual Health + Reproductive Health

SHRH

Sexual Health + Reproductive Health

Sexual Health + Reproductive Health

Developing responsive resources and services for women, youth and children in the areas of sexual and reproductive health; HIV/AIDS; bodily integrity, choice and rights; and gender and sexuality.

Health

Promoting advocacy and action in the fight against preventable diseases and the provision of safe and quality access to information, health services, and proper resource management within communities.

Economic Empowerment

Investing in women's capacity to mobilise and sustain crucial resources for their communities through innovative entrepreneurship, savings and loan strategies.

Disability Rights

Supporting the inclusion of people with disabilities within the sectors of everyday life and building their capacity to attest their rights, participate in and lead decision-making processes.

Violence Against Women + Girls

Amplifying equality, respect, dignity and visibility of the contributions of women and girls to society by building community awareness and responses to violence against women and girls.

The focus area of Sexual Health + Reproductive Health (SHRH) concerns the provision of

quality access to information and health services for women, youth and adolescents,

particularly for family planning; maternal, neonatal and child health; teen mothers and

pregnant teenagers; comprehensive abortion care; sexuality and gender identity and

representation; HIV/AIDSand sexually transmitted infections (STIs); bodily health,

choice, integrity and rights; and menstrual health.

 

A major success of this thematic area is the creation of peer educators

(in and out of school youth leaders) who through HFFG intervention and mentorship

build community integrated platforms for other young people to discuss SHRH

issues and seek access to key services. This is done through school clubs, youth

forums, drop-in centres, church and mosque discussions, field trip outings,

counseling sessions, entrepreneurial skill trainings, community durbars,

youth-led radio programmes, and events featuring art, drama, film and sports.

 

Through these action agendas, young people like those involved in the UKAID/Paladium

funded Ghana Adolescent Reproductive Health (GHARH) project, are gaining

opportunities to create new pathways of insight, solidarity, and change within

their communities while also building significant leadership skills that carry

real weight and power.
