Hi Eunice.
Thank you for sharing the link to the research! There looks to be very interesting and useful information collected. http://pma2020.org/reports/pma2017uganda-r5-adolescent-brief
Do you know offhand how this survey is being advertised to women and teens so that they participate? When I have time I am going to spend some time on the website to learn more.

(Eunice I didn't see your response initially. I just came back to the Challenge site and was scanning ideas and saw your reply. I have been an OpenIDEO community member for a while. Here is a tip. When you reply to a comment, reply under the comment - hit the "blue reply" and a comment box will appear. When you do that the person who you are writing to gets a notification email that you replied. Actually if there is a thread of comments, "a conversation", everyone in the thread will get a notification email, so they can join in.)

Maybe link the Website in your post above so other community members can reference it too?

Hi Eunice, thanks for sharing! I agree with Tina that the report brief is very interesting. I would suggest even adding it as an attachment to your post as well as the link to the website so that other community members can go and get this information.
I agree that it'd be interesting to know more about how this information is shared with teens and women and also how it might inform policy as well as the creation of new services. I also wonder if you know how these data are collected. For example I thought that the way Shifra is gathering data through the use of their platforms in order to understand better needs and develop new products and services was really interesting https://challenges.openideo.com/challenge/youth-srh/research/shifra-mobile-health-for-mobile-populations


Interesting insights from the brief:
differences in practices based on geography (urban vs. rural) and level of education (with or without secondary education or vocational schools).
only 1 in 5 unmarried sexually active or married women age 15-24 uses a modern method of
contraception.
Other important fact: Young women predominantly live in rural areas, and have some sort of primary education.
Thanks Eunice!

Hi Eunice. Thanks for sharing! Is this survey currently being conducted? If yes, how are youth targeted to participate? What age range is targeted? Do you have a sample of the survey to share?
