Global Hope Mobilisation (Glohomo) says there is need for the current government of President Peter Mutharika to channel more financial and material resources towards reproductive health projects targeting youths.
Glohomo executive director Caleb Thole said this during a sensitisation meeting on Monday in Nkhotakota District where the organisation is implementing various youth-related health reproductive projects.
“If the youth are to be equipped with knowledge or information there is need for more government support through the Ministry of Health.
“There is need for youths to be equipped with knowledge on early marriages, drug and alcohol abuse and HIV and Aids, among others,” said Thole.
He said the organisation will expand the project to other districts in the country, following the success registered in Nkhotakota.
Thole said the project, funded by UNaids, has, among other achievements, rescued 2 000 girls from early marriages.
Glohomo launched its project in Nkhotakota after survey findings showed that most youths in the district were still vulnerable to many health-related dangers.
