With Gamba Nanye, we can protect Adolescent Girls and Young Women's Right to privacy & Confidentiality when seeking Reproductive Health Services
Women in Uganda remain one of the most marginalized and vulnerable groups when it comes to accessing health services in Uganda due to language barrier.
Most adolescent girls and young women in western Uganda are illiterate and cannot communicate in English. In addition, most health workers in this region do not understand local languages since they come from other regions of Uganda.
The only language they can use is English which the local women and girls do not understand.
This as a result creates a communication gap which limits doctors and police to appreciate their issues accurately when they come for help and as a result, women have their rights to confidentiality, privacy and informed Consent violated through the use of interpreters.
In a bid to bridge the communication gap between Adolescent Girls, women and mothers seeking family planning methods and other health services, EPHWOR developed an app that helps consumers interact directly with service providers.
