Omondi commented on Access to comprehensive healthcare to all.

In our community stillbirth is a great concern because of less health facility like the personnel.The nearest health facility is about 100kilometres from our villages again the prevalence of the HIV/AIDS as indicated by eunice we have been tring to make visits to these homes for some advice but what we lack is enough resources to run these programs like logistics behind these is the lack of the enough experienced people whom we can use to give these people enough education on how to be careful when they are pregnant and advice on how to know there status when they are pregnant. In homa-bay teenagers are lured into sex after using drugs and the money that is fetched from the catch of the fish because that is what they can see.We wanted to start a pilot programme that also targets children in some primary and secondary schools because we noted that during the holidays and weekends,most learners are idle and this is when we put them through the programme.Parents trust teachers to nurture their children but unfortunately teachers are unable to provide the best education because they have to balance between academics and promoting behavior change,''
Because most teenagers lack information on reproductive health they resort to unprotected sex with their peers or even with adults who offer them gifts including money,smartphones and promises.Teenagers discover sex from their peers when they become pregnant they often opt for unsafe abortions we wanted to enroll these youths into programmes in our county on the reproductive,maternal,neon-natal and adolescent framework to provide direction for the coordination,implementation,monitoring and evaluation of reproduction health and how to to avoid unsafe sex to avoid HIV/AIDS syphilis,toxoplasmosis,rubella,hepatitis and others related diseases early pregnancies and school drop outs the problems is that we lack enough resources and enough trained personnel to execute these duties effectively
