  35. I am a volunteer youth advocate and peer educator in a community based organisation called Youth Outreach Programme (YOP), Cameroon. I inform, educate and sensitize young people in a weekly radio program called “Youth Drive”.Youth Drive is an educative initiative that brings issues of prime concern to youths so that they should make informed decisions , avoid risky behaviors and join in the fight against poverty, HIV/AIDS and related issues. Our past editions have been on presidential election in Cameroon, climate change and the 8 millennium development goals.Editions on MDGs were very sensitive because we realised that many youths were not awared of them and thus, we needed effective and efficient communication strategies and about 3months to educate them on each goal.
    Taking part on this workshop will boost and foster my capacity as a peer educator and youth advocate who has to be a role model to better train and educate young people of my community who are the leaders of tomorrow.

    Today’s woman is apparently known for its presence either in the house or at its office workplace promising its influence at both the places. As such it is very important that women health or say women reproductive health is of prime consideration due to rising female death rate due to unwanted pregnancies and other sexually transmitted diseases.Women health reproductive is primarily concerned with health activities like contraception, fertility, infertility and other sexually transmitted diseases. Here contraception by way of pills, condoms, diaphragm, intrauterine, vasectomy is important way to avoid unintended pregnancies and other hormonal diseases.-
