In case you missed our webinars on the impact of COVID-19 on NGOs, COVID and young people’s access to SRHR information, and the contribution of COVID-19 to Gender-Based violence, here are the highlights of the discussion, also check the highlights on YouTube.

Dealing with COVID19: The conversation on young people’s access to SRHR services in lockdown.

As government heads make decisive efforts like lockdowns to prevent the spread of COVID 19, young people’s access to sexual and reproductive health information and services like testing and seeking treatment for STIs, contraception, mental health, and access to AntiRetroviral Treatment have suffered significantly. In this webinar, we will discuss how to create access for services and meet young people’s specific Sexual Reproductive Health needs in the midst of the #COVID19 Pandemic. This will be held on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, at 11:30 pm EAT.
