ProGRAM information

Uganda has the highest rates of teenage pregnancies in East Africa, high maternal mortality rates due to unsafe abortions, early marriages, school dropouts and difficulties in attaining better SRHR services and information. SHIELD believes that with partnership with different stakeholders, government agencies and policy makers, we can amplify young people’s diverse voices for help and lobby for better policies so as to curb the poor SRHR indicators in Uganda.

Our advocacy programs aim at ensuring that people particularly those who are most vulnerable in the society are able to; a) have their voices heard on issues affecting them and b) defend and safeguard their rights.
