Kamuli and Mayuge districts have received 16.8 billion Shillings from the Norwegian government for creating awareness for sexual and reproductive health, and rights among adolescents in the region.

The money will be funding activities under a three-year project geared towards empowering girls and women to decide over their bodies and ensure access to comprehensive adolescent and youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health information and services.

While signing the Memorandum of Understanding for the project, the Norwegian Ambassador to Uganda Elin Ostebo Johansen said that many young people in Uganda lack the knowledge they need to make responsible decisions about their sexual and reproductive health.
