Community Talk: 28 February at 11 am

In Uganda, high rates of teenage pregnancies and HIV persist, especially due to limited sexual and reproductive health education. This project aims to empower parents in rural areas to communicate effectively about these topics.

The project aimed to improve young adolescents’ access to comprehensive SRH information by improving the communication capabilities of parents and guardians in rural southwestern Uganda. Considering the cultural sensitivity, the project employed a community-based participatory research design, implemented and evaluated parent-adolescent communication intervention that covered 284 dyads.

The intervention was translated into a contextualised parent-child communication manual and an adolescents' sexual and reproductive health clinic was established at Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Uganda.

Have these objectives been achieved? What unexpected obstacles did they encounter? What impact have they generated?

During this Community Talk, the involved researchers will share their experiences, findings, and lessons learned on this project.
