Omondi Eric shares his experience with restless development. These were included in a report that was presented during the last Africa health international agenda in Kigali Rwanda….
…ASHWA, a youth-led organisation operating in Busia, Uganda works on SRHR and gender equality issues including menstrual hygiene, reducing stigma around accessing sexual health services and post-abortion care, and sensitising communities to the harmful effects of unsafe abortion. One of the approaches used by ASHWA Uganda to raise awareness and seek accountability from district health officers and district leaders is through a partnership with a local radio station. According to Eric Omondi of ASHWA, “We engage the community through talk shows. Listeners call in and ask questions to the leaders about what they have done.” For example, community members have called in to the radio saying that they cannot access HIV and AIDS drugs on time, calling on the community leader to ensure the stock is replenished by the national drug authority in a timely manner. Omondi notes that using the radio has also had a positive effect on the organisation’s profile and reputation in the community which in turn allows them greater access to district health officials and district leaders to carry out their work advocating for youth-friendly health services.
