MetadataShow full item record
I conducted a study on the challenges faced by service providers of the sexual and reproductive health care services in Kampala, Uganda. The study was carried out in different health facilities such as Mulago in the STD clinic, Marie Stopes Uganda, the women’s specialized hospital-Mulago and some non-governmental organizations such as Reproductive Health Uganda as well as MJAP Makerere University hospital. The study was guided by both the specific and general objectives. The general objective of this study was to examine the challenges faced by service providers of sexual and reproductive health care services. The specific objectives of the study were to examine the conceptualization of the SRH care services, examine who the service providers of the sexual and reproductive health care services are and explore the existing sexual and reproductive health services in Uganda. A descriptive design and a qualitative approach were used to generate the required information from the study participants. This report therefore presents the findings of a qualitative study conducted in Kampala district in the month of October 2022 among the different service providers including those from hospitals and as well as organizations such as Mulago Women’s hospital, MARPI-Most at Risk Persons Initiative, MJAP-Makerere University Joint AIDS Program, Reproductive Health Uganda-RHU and as well as Marie Stopes Uganda. Some of the key existing SRH needs are identified as well as the challenges the service providers face, perceptions people have towards the services etc. Key conclusions are drawn and recommendations made.
