Campaign on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Youth in BiH

79% of girls aged 14 to 25 have never seen a gynecologist for shame. Only 19% of youth know where to be tested anonymously for HIV in BiH and 50% of youth did not use a condom during their first intercourse. The research was conducted by the German Society for International Cooperation GIZ in 2010 on a sample of subjects aged 14 to 25. 

A campaign on sexual and reproductive health and youth in BiH is conducted as a part of the project “My Rights, My Decision” that is implemented by the German Society for International Development – Deutsche Gesellschaft fĂĽr Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH with the support of Bayer HealthCare through public and private partnership. On that occasion, peer educators of KULT held workshops on the following topics in high schools in IlidĹľa : puberty, anatomy and physiology of male and female reproductive system, contraception, types and methods of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS. 

“My Rights, My Decision” is an awareness-raising project on reproductive health and rights of youth aged from 14 to 26 and the project will also include other youth-health-related topics such as preventing alcohol and cigarettes addiction, preventing violence and pursuing a ballanced diet, for the purpose of making healthy and right decisions.
