Celebrating 8 years of The Mmoho Campaign, March 2022, Durban
Since its launch in 2013, the mmoho campaign had the honour of celebrating its 8th year anniversary with friends and partners alike of the campaign. Mmoho Steering Committee member Siphesihle Bhengu commemorated this great milestone by hosting a youth dialogue in his province of Kwa-Zulu Natal that was attended by 24 young people from across the province. The purpose of the engagement was to share the strides made by the campaign since its inception, rebranding updates, and an invitation for all partners, especially young people to continue engaging and contributing to the success of the campaign. The session was also an opportunity to facilitate a conversation about finding solutions to improve access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) information and services in the province, particularly on the rising number of unplanned pregnancies, the incidence rate of HIV/STIs, and unsafe abortions that have been accessed by young people.
