Young people in Uganda have significant unmet sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs. This is particularly the case for young people from key populations. The prevalence of HIV among sex workers of all ages is between 35% and 37%, five times higher than the general population. Sex workers also face other serious sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) issues, including high rates of unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
The situation for young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people is also difficult. They face serious challenges in accessing SRHR services at a time in their lives when accessing these services is critical.
