Access to family planning information and services remains an essential conversation that we are not having yet we have to. Join Reach A Hand Uganda with support from UNFPA Uganda, Reproductive Health Uganda, PSI Uganda, and UK AID for the first-ever e-Conference on family planning in Uganda. Register online to take part by clicking the link here and be ready to learn from experts and a key player on how we can promote access to FP before, during, and after lockdown and follow the conversation online too via #COVID19andFP.

COVID-19 has caused a never anticipated disruption in meeting family planning needs worldwide. According to UNFPA, the direct lessons and impact of the pandemic include; Clinical staff occupied with the COVID-19 response may not have time to provide services or may lack personal protective equipment to provide services safely, health facilities in many places are closing or limiting services, and women are refraining from visiting health facilities due to fears about COVID-19 exposure or due to movement restrictions. Join the e-conference to discuss this and more on Thursday 14 May at 11:00 E.A.T.
