Since 1957 Amref Flying Doctors works on a healthy and strong Africa. We are the largest African health organisation and rely on the strength of the African people themselves. We train care providers in Africa, offer basic care and provide information. We also talk to African governments, because we want improvements in health care to be permanent. We focus on young women and girls, and will not shy away from sensitive services like family planning.
The main objective of “Stand Up for Adolescents in Malawi” is to contribute towards the reduction of teenage pregnancies and ending child marriages in Mangochi, Malawi.
We will do this by changing attitudes of community members and gatekeepers towards teenage pregnancies and child pregnancies. We will make sure young people have more knowledge, skills and changed attitudes about healthy sexual behaviour and control over their own body and marriage choices. We will improve access to sexual and reproductive health services among adolescent boys and girls.
