The Aga Khan Foundation Uganda and Triggerise, a non-profit company that developed a user-centric digital platform, have launched a new campaign in Kampala and Arua to increase youth’s access to reproductive health services. The new campaign in the two cities is jointly funded by the Aga Khan Foundation UK and Children’s Investment Fund Foundation. Ms Meralyn Mungereza, country manager for the Aga Khan Foundation Uganda, said the campaign is aimed at increasing access to information and quality adolescent-friendly reproductive health services for young girls. "The Covid-19 pandemic exacerbated the situation, there was a rise in teenage pregnancies, school-going girls [gave] birth during [national] exams. The challenge is real. We need to empower girls with information and bring services near them," she said.
