This day of the University of The Gambia Students’ week 2019 is centered on Sexual and Reproductive Health on the theme: ” Revitalising the Sexual and Reproductive health of adolescents youths and communities”.
This day is sponsored by the United Nations Populations Fund, the Gambia.
The first activity,in the morning, was an interactive seminar on the theme. The Speakers were from the Ministry of Health, UNFPA , Your Change for a Change, Safe Hands for Girls and Think Young Women and a student representative from the medical school.
The discussion was centered on safe sexual Practices, Personal hygiene, breast cancer awareness etc.
The discussion was very engaging as key misconceptions related to our health system were clarified.
We then had a community outreach with the community of Tendaba on the theme and later a free blood testing exercise was carried out.
