The inclusive health system that is being lobbied for suggests that youths be involved in promoting health Youth Friendly Services (YFS). Many young people in Uganda die from unsafe abortion procedures and many proponents of the legalization of abortion for special cases fear that many more will continue to lose their lives in the absence of, for example, legal interventions.
Phiona Mbabazi, a student of Community Psychology at Makerere University said young people are not given the attention they deserve in health facilities. “The problem is that when we young people visit health facilities to get help, we are not given due attention to explain our problems by the adults. They shout at you, judge you and regard you as an outcast,” she said.
