It has been revealed that the availability of Youth Community Based Distribution Agents (CBDAs) could help the youth to have access to Family Planning Services.
Speaking in Kasungu on Tuesday, during a training of 50 CBDAs including youth CBDAs, National Family Planning trainer in the Ministry of Health, Nelson Mkandawire said young people are willing to access family planning services but there are some hindrances.
“The youth who are willing are unable to be reached with FP services. Another issue is that the youth are more comfortable with their fellow youth and can easily be helped,ā he said.
Family Planning Association of Malawi (FPAM) with support from UNFPA and Ministry of Health is training the CBDAs from different catchment areas across 18 health facilities in Kasungu.
FPAM is conducting the training under the UN Joint Programme for Girls Education (JPGE III) project with the aim of ensuring continued Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR).
