On Friday 24th February, 2017, Gifted Hands Network Uganda with the support of other NGOs including Uganda Youth & Adolescents Health Forum launched a very ambitious campaign dubbed #EndBreastCancerNow
I must say, today’s youth is more than focused no solving tomorrows’ health issues! With a collective action plan and a positive mind-set, #KISOBOKA!
Agnes, a breast cancer survivor told her always energizing story, her darkest days are right behind her! She’s really a strong optimistic woman for someone who lost her breasts to cancer. She’s a proud mother of two, a medical practitioner, social activist and a politician. Agnes believes one needs a positive mind-set and all round support to fight cancer.
She advised ladies to go for cancer screening as early detection gives one a good fighting chance! If you’re on treatment , carry on as advised by the doctors.
UYAHF (Uganda Youth & Adolescents Health Forum) Took sometime off to share its never ending message, #PulaniKi? A civic moment educating the youth about sexuality in a plenary session.
A few notes from the plenary session
- Don’t let peer pressure bully you into sex if you’re not physically and mentally ready for it!
- Be faithful to one sexual partner to avoid STIs/STDs
- Always use a condom!
- Know your status
- If positive, get medical assistance! STIs/STDs including HIV are not the end of life. Its okay to live positive as long as you do your medication as prescribed by the physicians and live with a positive ATTITUDE
- Don’t discriminate persons/relatives infected with HIV
Do not lose hope, we the youth of today can fight Cancer, Aids and all other diseases that hold us back if we stay focused! #KISOBOKA let us #EndBreastCancerNow! Follow UYAHF on Twitter and Facebook @ for more about the #PulaniKi Campaign and more.
