A group of over 60 youths have been empowered with knowledge on sexual and reproductive rights, in a three day peer education training conducted by Public Health Ambassadors Uganda in Kiboga district. The training attracted youths from Hoima and Kiboga districts who were trained in Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights like the different family planning methods and Sexually Transmitted Diseases.
International Youth Day seeks to elevate attentiveness to the cultural and legal issues faced by youth throughout the world. The United Nations defines youth as people between the ages of 15 and 24 years, although locally, youth can be interpreted in a more flexible manner.
