Men are critical to Sexual Reproductive healtt

Project Officer for CAVWOC Linda Alimoso drew the highlight during a coordination meeting for girls from various Youth Clubs in Traditional Authority Nazombe and Male Champions, aimed at creating linkages between the two groups in order to facilitate strong SRH advocacy. According to Alimoso, lack of linkage between the two groups has proven to create challenges especially in reaching out to men on issues of SRH as they tend to listen to fellow men than the opposite sex on such issues. “When we send a man to convert a man into accepting Sexual Reproductive Health we achieve more than when we send women to do the same. This is because men are not so easy to convince especially when the issue at hand has to do with a woman, so in this arrangement we are using male champions to woo fellow men into helping girls and women speak out on issues of Sexual Reproductive Health,” Alimoso said. Through an Amplify Change funded project aimed at improving girls’ access to sexual Reproductive Health and Information, CAVWOC is facilitating the male championship initiative in which exemplary men advocate for provision of SRH services to girls as a way of protecting them from dropping out of school due to pregnancies. more at https://malawi24.com/2019/08/22/men-critical-to-srh-advocacy-cavwoc/
