What specific problem(s) are you trying to address? (300 character limit)

Lack of knowledge regarding SRHR issues among adolescent and youth both in rural and remote area increases the risk of sexual transmitted disease, unwanted pregnancy, and early marriage in the community. Providing a better access of information and health service is one way to solve the problems.

What are some of your unanswered questions about the problem(s) you are working to address? (500 character limit)

Local stigma is still happening. Most of the local community, especially the parents, still believe that discussing SRHR issues is taboo. It is become a reason why the activity that involving adolescent and youth (for example: health promotion, social media campaign, etc.) regarding SRHR issue is challenging. Therefore, we believe that collaboration and social empowerment which involve adolescent and youth as a agent of change through i-CiBus Project is a strategic way to reduce this stigma.

Who are your end users? (1000 character limit)

We believe that everyone has the same rights for better access of information and health service regarding SRHR. In term of urgency and based on the result of community needs assessment in CiBus Pilot Project, we would like to focus on adolescent and youth (age 10-24 years old) in rural and remote area around Bali Province - Indonesia. The community which still believe that SRHR is taboo, also become our priority target. By i-CiBus Project, the adolescent and youth will get new experience through an attractive and friendly access of information regarding SRHR topic. The aim of this project is to increase the knowledge, attitude, and behavior of adolescent and youth, so they have skills and confidence to protect their health and promote safe sexual choices. We hope at least 800-1000 participants will join, and also they become an agent of change to join in health promotion and public campaign to educate the other, and of course to reduce stigma in local community regarding SRHR issues.
