On 30th January 2024, HACC conducted a first awareness raising on Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) in school in Banteay Srey district Siem Reap Province. The purposes of awareness raising in schools are to provide knowledge related to SRH, HIV/AIDs, and STI, introduce Youth Health App to students, and encourage them to access SHR/ YHFS at health centers.
This awareness raising is very important as youth learn mor about Menstruation Hygiene Management (MHM), learn how to use Youth Health App, are aware of HIV, STI prevention. During this awareness raising youth had the opportunity to ask questions related to SRH and other health issues and receive answers from health center staff.
Sixty participants (40 females) actively participated in this awareness raising including school principal, teachers, health center staff, representatives of Plan International, and HACC.
This is the first of the five awareness raisings to be carried out from 30th January to 01st February 2024 in three districts of Siem Reap, Banteay Srey, Angkor Chum and Angkor Thom.
HACC is implementing these activities with supports from Plan International Cambodia.
