Health is a basic human right that every person should enjoy without discrimination. The ability to achieve sexual and reproductive health and rights is critical for the health and well-being of all youths especially young women and adolescent girls.
YETU also understands that community-based health programs play a key role in improving health and quality of life for rural people. Thus operates a community health centre to improve health outcomes for rural communities.
At the health centre, YETU ensures that community members have access to timely, quality and affordable health services provided by skilled health personnel. At the health centre, communities access and utilise services including, immunisation, health education, family planning, SRH services, maternity care and treatment for infectious diseases among others.
Through the program, we also undertake menstrual hygiene and management outreaches to the community and schools. We ensure that young women and girls of reproductive health age have the MHM knowledge and products to ensure good hygiene, and confidence and to stay in school. We make and distribute reusable sanitary towels to adolescent girls both in and out of school and we also train them to make their own pads out of locally available materials. We believe that no girl should drop out of school or lack confidence because of menstruation
