This is the concluding part of our discussion on Sexual Reproductive Health.
Now discussions between young people
and their parents, health care providers, or other influential figures about sexual health can have many positive effects.
These conversations can help educate young people about the risks and benefits of sexual activity and provide them with information on how to practice safe sex.
Find out more in this conversation with Dr. Kwaku Asah-Opoku, a Senior Specialist Obstetrician Gynaecologist at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Ghana.
Similarly, few young women in Senegal use formal sexual and reproductive health services; many appear to be unsure whether they are allowed to use contraception before the age of 18.
Young women also cite cultural and religious attitudes and norms that censor premarital sexual activity as reasons for not seeking services.
Dr Chilanga Asmani, Family Planning program and policy advisor at UNFPA West and central office will speak on this.
