What Women Want and Engender Health Uganda join forces to tackle what women want for their maternal and reproductive health. Highlighting the stories of two women, Engender Health describes the rising numbers of fistulas and the hope for respectful care.
One-in-four Ugandan girls aged 15–19 years old is a mother or pregnant with her first child, robbing 25% of the country’s adolescent girls of their potential. Teen pregnancy also contributes to thousands of deaths and disabilities to young girls and newborn every year, with consequences for mother, child, family, community and nation. WRA Uganda is utilizing citizen-led advocacy to raise the issue among policymakers and using the What Women Want campaign to hear directly from women about their needs around reproductive health and family planning.
