Empowering young people in their sexual health choices in Tanzania

The Youth for Health (Y4H) project is working in Tanzania to support the delivery of teen-friendly services in the area of sexual and reproductive health.

The project, co-funded by the European Union, seeks to increase awareness of sexual and reproductive health issues, ensure that support services are available and train staff to provide support in public sector facilities.

Read the stories of Zawada and Emmanuely, who were both able to benefit from family planning services thanks to Y4H; Sophia, a health worker who was trained on how to provide youth-friendly services; and Mbuya, who was selected as a youth champion to support her peers.
