Through a grant from UNAIDS, the Eminyeeto Program has been successfully meeting the first goal of providing preventive health measures since 2010.

Our primary objectives are to provide free, youth-focused access to:

  • family planning resources
  • HIV/AIDS and STI prevention and treatment

 

 


Three centers around Ruhiira, each staffed by a trained nurse, provide the following services:

  • primary-care referrals to the local health-center
  • treatment of STIs
  • regular health discussions with special emphasis on sex-education and HIV-prevention
  • family planning information
  • contraception knowledge and condom distribution
  • counseling

Creating a safe, youth-only environment is a necessary means to tackle the current stigma of visiting bigger health centers for reproductive health services as an adolescent.
