BACKGROUND TO THE 2019 EDITION OF THE EXECUTIVE SEMINAR SERIES
Health Indicators around adolescents (10 to 19 years old) and
young people (15 to 24 years old), especially those of Sexual and
Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) have consistently presented
very worrying trends over the years. Meanwhile, a lasting solution
to this trend has persistently continued to elude the Public Health
Community (PHC) while the problems
continue to surge, especially in developing countries like Uganda.
BACKGROUND TO THE 2018 EDITION OF THE EXECUTIVE SEMINAR SERIES
Sexuality Education is an important subject in Uganda.
In recognition of the need to raise more awareness on
this subject, the Hon. Ministry of Education and Sports
has recently launched the National Sexuality Education Framework,
which provides guidelines on how Sexuality Education should be handled
in schools. There is an urgent need to disseminate this
information far and wide among the Secondary Education sub-population.
