The OPEN MIC
Open Mic Project is a Poetry training and mentorship program implemented by Open Mic Uganda and Public Health Ambassadors Uganda under the “Culture at Work” grant. The project grant is sponsored by the European Union and is implemented among youth refugees in Nakivaale refugee settlement in Isingiro District, Uganda.
The Bfree project is a pilot of a newly developed antibacterial 'Bfree' menstrual cup, a cup which does not require water for boiling and like other menstrual cups lasts for more than 10 years and is a sustainable solution to menstrual hygiene challenges in Uganda, especially in a refugee context.
The project is sub-granted from Women's Global Health Innovations and a partnership between PHAU and WoMena.
This project reaches out to these raiders through “Ludo”, one of the most popular interactive board games played at different bodaboda stages as a way of entertainment whenever they are not on the road transporting passengers. The project is based on the behavioral change theory that focuses on empowering riders with HIV/AIDS information through distribution of themed “Ludo” boards with different HIV/AIDS awareness messages to selected stages in Wakiso District.
YoSpace is a youth brand being implemented by PHAU with support from Population Services International (PSI-Uganda). The project is aimed at creating demand and utilization of SRHR services such as Family Planning, HIV counseling and testing, Gender-Based Violence, and HIV/AIDS among girls and women aged 15 to 24 years in order to contribute to the fight of teenage pregnancy, early childhood marriages and HIV prevalence rate. We have so far implemented it in six districts in Uganda namely; Luwero, Jinja, Hoima, Masindi, Kabarole, and Bushenyi. The project is conducted in a format of door to door mobilization by peer educators, radio talk shows, conducting of community outreaches, institutional outreaches with a fusion of edutainment as a key mobilization tool for young people. Young people are reached with accurate information on SRHR and later referred to “Profam Clinics”.
