Adolescent Reproductive health in Northern Uganda
Adolescent Reproductive Health in Northern Uganda
Understanding adolescent reproductive health and pregnancy outcomes in post-conflict Northern Uganda
Sexual, reproductive and maternal health issues remain a leading cause of death in adolescent girls, especially in low income countries. The way forward is integration of health services where prevention and early treatment packages are tailored to the needs of adolescents. In post-conflict Northern Uganda, this project will explore key factors related to adolescent maternal and sexual health services. Participants will complete a survey on pregnancy intentions and outcomes during adolescence and access to sexual health services. The goal is to describe services available in this setting, and identify opportunities to improve adolescent maternal health.
