YMEP stands for Young Men as Equal Partners. It is a regional programme on sexual and reproductive health among adolescents.

The programme is executed by the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education, RFSU, and takes place in four countries: Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Zambia.

RFSU works in partnership with four fellow member associations of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, IPPF.

  • UMATI – The Tanzania Family Planning Association
  • FHOK – Family Health Options Kenya
  • RHU – Reproductive Health Uganda
  • PPAZ – Planned Parenthood Association of Zambia

The idea with the YMEP website is to give young people, teachers and service providers from different regions within YMEP a place to get together. It is also intended to show members of the public what YMEP is all about. Please feel free to share your success stories and discuss your experiences!

I was a peer educator in Nyanza Province, Bondo District, Usigu Division. The project covered four locations within the division. As you know the area is a lake region, there were so many challenges like: school drop out among youths, early marriages, drug abuse, unsafe sexual practice and many more which led to high HIV prevalence.

Through YMEP activities, all these have drastically changed as the community members have been sensitized in accordance to the above challenges.

Thanks to the Family Health Options, our donors from Sweden, regional manager Mr. Bernard Washika, Bondo District co-coordinator Mr. Meshack Olang and all peer educators from Nyanza more so Bondo Ditrict.

Even though YMEP is gone, its activities are still in progress.
