Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights Due to the geographical and cultural nature of the district, access to information by the youth and vulnerable groups in the district has been a serious issue. Most information on sexual and reproductive health and rights is not readily available. This situation is also partly caused by wilful denial of information to youth and vulnerable groups by parents and other stakeholders that they are risky and unstable group. In a generation driven by luck of access to information, the exclusion of vulnerable people from vital information means that they are further pushed into frustration, poverty, destitution, unwanted pregnancies among girls and contraction of HIV and STIs. Adolescent girls and boys face a lot of problems as they transcend to adulthood. Most of these are related to their sexual and reproductive health. Adolescent girls and boys are recognized as one of the underserved categories and their sexual, reproductive health and rights (SRHR) related issues exist without concrete action plan in our district and the nation at large. There is marked absence of reliable data and information, which is indicative of the priority given to this age group in most societies. Young people’s knowledge regarding SRHR is limited. There is therefore an urgent need to provide proper services for contraceptives, HIV testing, Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) treatment, condoms etc for young people to meet their SRHR needs.
