John Kwasi Amuzu Engages Rural Community Members in Ghana on Family Planning and Sexual Health
As part of John Kwasi Amuzu‘s (Class of 2018) advocacy work in Ghana, he initiated a project called “CSE for All.” This project aimed to provide comprehensive sexuality education to women, girls, and adolescents in and out of school. It also engaged traditional rulers, midwives, mothers, and traditional birth attendants in the communities in focus group discussions to talk about maternal mortality. The data from these discussions serve as supplementary indicators to monitor SDGs 3 and 5. The project serves as a platform for women living in rural communities to be educated on the importance of family planning and contraception for birth spacing as a strategy to reduce maternal death in various communities in Ghana. The platform also works to ensure adolescents to have access to information on making informed decisions regarding their sexual health.
