It's not shameful, it's your health!

Uluk is 16 and has been volunteering with the Reproductive Health Alliance of Kyrgyzstan for 4 years.  I tell other young people: "We have to care for our own reproductive health - no one else will. I'm asking you: get involved with your reproductive health, NOW.  There's nothing shameful in knowing about it; it's shameful NOT to know about it." There are million of volunteers like Uluk at IPPF's Member Associations who are having a tremendous impact on the lives of other young people in the communities. You can get involved today, just find your local IPPF Member Association.

Reproductive Health Alliance of Kyrgyzstan

The Reproductive Health Alliance Kyrgyzstan (RHAK) was set up in 2001, and its services now extend across all 7 regions of the Kyrgyz Republic (Osh, Jalal-Abad, Talas, Chui, Naryn, Batken, Issyk-Kul).

From its inception, RHAK has enjoyed strong youth support and input into its organization, policy-making and delivery. As a result, its youth work is a distinctive strength.

RHAK has developed information materials for adolescents which cover critical sexual and reproductive health (SRH) issues such as contraception and the prevention and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs, including HIV and AIDS).

A significant contingent of national and international trainers have been involved in training health professionals and volunteers who’ve subsequently trained groups of all sorts in SRH. Particular interest groups include refugees and internal migrants, injecting drug users (IDUs), sex workers, children in care and homeless children.

RHAK is an active member of collaborative, central Asian initiatives to address the particular SRH needs and challenges of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and repatriates. This work has included the publication and circulation of a substantial range of written materials, and the creation of 3 clinics located expressly to serve migrant communities.
