Youth consultation workshop on modern family planning methods
The unmet need of family planning in Sri Lanka indicates that there are certain vulnerable populations (youth, working women, and older women,among them for whom coverage is limited by the government sector’s services) that remain unreached, without adequate access to sexual and reproductive health information and modern contraceptive services.
Through the FP2020 – UNFPA funded project, (which is carried out under the purview of FPA Sri Lanka’s Advocacy Unit) initiating a family planning rebranding strategy to help increase awareness and usage of modern contraceptive methods was deemed necessary.
One of the key activities of the initial phase of this project is to develop easy to comprehend, attention-grabbing leaflets and booklets in all three languages.
To facilitate the development of material, a youth consultation workshop on modern family planning methods was organised on the 29th of June 2019 to give information and creative direction to the participating youth (from Jaffna, Batticaloa, Kalmunai, Anuradhapura and Colombo) so that they in turn could design attractive and informative leaflets and brochures which can be used in offline and online platforms as the project moves forward. It was a very successful event and many creative ideas and designs were presented.
