Participants and facilitators of the Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights Training workshop in the Western Division.

A workshop in the West­ern Division was fo­cused on allowing youths to recognise the linkag­es between sexual reproductive health and human rights.

More than 20 youths partici­pated in the one-week workshop which was co-ordinated by the Ministry of Youth and Sports at the Rogorogoivuda House in Lautoka.

Youths from youth-led organi­sations, civil societies, NGOS, faith-based and those working in the health sector were part of the training.

Jonasa Radidisa, a representa­tive from Ignite4Change was fortunate to be selected among the youths that attended the training.

He acknowledged the Minis­try of Youth and Sports for the opportunity and indicated that the training was a space for youths to discuss sensitive top­ics which may not be discussed in their communities due to cultural reasons.

Adi Makelesi Koroitamana, an aspiring law student at the University of Fiji, said the workshop youths to be empowered and that the information she acquired from the workshop will be dissemi­nated to her colleagues, family and community.
