Primary Health Care and Health Promotion
People are dying and suffering unnecessarily because of a lack of access to quality healthcare. Poor health keeps people trapped in a cycle of poverty. Teenage pregnancies worsen gender inequality in education and increase poverty levels.
Communities are mobilized and sensitized on health topics including hygiene and sanitation to reduce incidences of falling sick from preventable diseases. The Network empowers communities to demand for effective health service delivery and a friendly environment at health facilities.
NEMACY-Uganda protects children from teenage pregnancies (including abortions) and other risks by providing information about Sexually Transmitted Infections(STIs) / Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), HIV/AIDS and contraception; supporting and talking to them to delay sexual relations, avoid smoking, drinking alcohol and taking drugs.
