Health

The organisation implements activities that cover a range of topics that relate to general health, reproductive health, and Hygiene. The training sessions help young people understand the basics of their body, develop skills for personal and household hygiene, and understand sexual Health. Materials to run these activities have been developed in partnership with Ministry of Health & Reproductive Health Uganda and the activities are implemented in Schools and Community Halls. YSU is also actively involved in the fight against the spread of HIV and other related illnesses. The organization designed a program called Kicking AIDS. The initiative is about using Sport, physical activities and games to educate young people on the pandemic, promote behavioral change and enhance their life skills that would help them as they face challenges that come with the pandemic. Under this area, the Sport is used as a tool for Outreach, communication and peer education on HIV/AIDS, focusing on preventative education and breaking down stigma. Materials developed by partners have been developed to run these activities which are incorporated in all trainings.
