Better still, the entrance fee is just 750 UGX. Are you unsure about one of the games? You can buy another ticket and change your prediction on the second ticket! You could win a consolation prize on both tickets, or get a bigger prize on one of them if your prediction is correct.

SBA also celebrate the weekend football with Odds Boosts every Saturday and Sunday. Here you will find bigger odds on popular selections, meaning bigger winnings when the Europe’s top sides claim a victory.

SRHR Alliance Uganda has announced the 5th edition of the annual Alliance Week which is aimed at empowering young people with knowledge on sexuality health and rights.

The Alliance Week focuses on creating safe spaces for young people to engage with their leaders as well as hold them accountable for the provision of sexuality education and youth friendly services as well as advocating for an enabling environment where they can frely access these services.

Held in Mayuge last year, this year’s Alliance Week will be hosted in Bugiri district under the theme ” bridging the Gap on ending child marriages and teenage pregnancies in Uganda”.

“The purpose of the Alliance week is for members in the alliance to come together and show cause for some of the sexual and reproductive health challenges that young people are facing,”Owekmeno Charles, National Program Coordinator SRHR Alliance Uganda told media during a press briefing held on Wednesday. “This year our focus is on bridging the gap in ending child marriages and teenage pregnancies because the rate of teenage pregnancy in the country remains alarmingly high.”

According to national statistics, the current rate of teenage pregnancy in Uganda is at 25% despite efforts by government and development partners to lower this rate rate to 14% by 2020, a commitment which was made in 2011 when teenage pregnancy was at 24%.

The statistics also indicate that at least 1 in 10 girls are married off by the age of 18 and 40% by age 18 while 1 in 4 teenage girls over 15 have already given birth or are pregnant.

During the alliance week, there will also be launch of a countrywide campaign geared towards reduction of teenage pregnancy and child marriages in Uganda. The campaign dubbed “Free Zone” will specifically target LC1s to champion the fight against teenage pregnancies and child marriages.

“We believe LC1s have a direct and immediate interaction with people bat the grassroots and being the political heads of the villages they are in a better position to champion this,” Owekmeno also noted. “Their role will be to identify and report cases and where need be rescue would be victims.”

The Alliance Week will feature several activities including interschool debates, community dialogues, STI testing & treatment, sports and games among others. It will run from Monday, 28th October to Friday, 1st November with the closing ceremony featuring musical performances headlined by John Blaq.

SRHR Alliance Uganda is a consortium of like-minded organizations which include Straight Talk Foundation, Reproductive Health Uganda, Reach A Hand Uganda and UNYPA among others.

Safe Motherhood Day: Unprecedented Campaign Reveals Women Want Better Services In Labour, In Clean, Well-Stocked Facilities

Published

on

As we celebrate Safe Motherhood Day, White Ribbon Alliance Uganda reveals the results of its ground-breaking What Women Want Campaign, a survey into women’s opinion on their own needs for quality reproductive and maternal healthcare. It is the authentic voice of 90,771 women and girls in 32 districts in Uganda, collected by dedicated mobilizers and partners.

Approximately 300,000 women and girls die during pregnancy and childbirth every year around the world. In Uganda, where the maternal mortality rate stands at 336 per 100,000 live births (UDHS 2016), changing this picture begins with women and girls. Women and girls must receive quality, equitable and dignified care if we are to achieve related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and universal health coverage.

But to provide quality healthcare, we need to understand what quality means to women and girls. Since quality has a huge impact on whether a woman or girl will seek care, the heart of the What Women Want campaign is about understanding quality from women’s and girls’ perspectives.

This Safe Motherhood Day, White Ribbon Alliance Uganda and partners under the What Women Want Uganda Chapter are raising awareness about the quality of reproductive healthcare women and girls need, starting with the top demand from the What Women Want campaign across all age groups: improved quality labour and delivery information, personnel, services and supplies. -more- From the responses, we have seen that quality means different things to different people.

To some, quality means access to a skilled healthcare provider, giving birth in a clean and friendly environment, the ability to space pregnancies or avoid pregnancy, or the opportunity to access sexual and reproductive health information. For others, it is the availability of ramps for those in wheelchairs, treatment free from discrimination, affordable healthcare, or care that is confidential and private.

Prossy Kesiime, 34, from Rukungiri District participated in the campaign after having given birth in the middle of the night in Queen Elizabeth National Game Park, surrounded by wildlife and fearing for her life. When she heard about the What Women Want campaign, she realized this was an opportunity to make sure that health planners and policymakers heard her story, so they could provide the services women need closer to where they live, allowing them to access the care they deserve without making such terrifying journeys.

The What Women Want campaign will help governments, health professionals, private health providers and civil society organizations to better understand what is most important to women when it comes to their healthcare needs and push for required changes.

White Ribbon Alliance and partners under the What Women Want Uganda Chapter are calling on stakeholders to take advantage of this rich information to amplify the voices of women and girls and use it to make their healthcare efforts more responsive and effective. White Ribbon Alliance Uganda National Coordinator Robina Biteyi says, “We must listen to the opinions of women and girls about their health, because these voices matter, and they must be valued so they can best direct their own healthcare. The What Women Want campaign will help advance programs and policies that matter to women and girls.”

Top 3 Asks in Uganda 1) Labour and delivery information, personnel, services and supplies, e.g. mama kits

2) Medicines and supplies (relating to availability of quality drugs, blood and blood testing kits)

3) Menstrual health (including the provision of sanitary pads in schools, information, availability of water, soap, medicines/painkillers, latrines etc) (Check top 10 asks/demands in WWW Uganda campaign report) Through the What Women Want campaign, the voices of the women and girls of Uganda are now being heard. They have given their priorities for quality reproductive and maternal healthcare – it is now time to listen and act on these demands.
