Solution Overview & Team Lead Details

What is the name of your solution?


Provide a one-line summary of your solution.

An app will be created that will provide access to the services of friendly youth (consulting), access to the services of friendly clinics, to the volunteer community, trainings, volunteering, and people will also have access to reliable and high-quality information about sexual health(in this app)

What is your solution?

This app provides access to friendly youth services (reproductive health and rights counselling), tolerant and friendly clinics, events, training, volunteering, access to reliable information about sexual health and rights.

Currently, our solution consists of three main components.

First, access to free reproductive health and rights counselling. Previously, this was practiced by our team. Now, I think it would be a good decision, since there are a lot of different news in the media about the health, risky behavior of adolescents, violence against them, etc.

Secondly, access to the services of tolerant and friendly clinics is a comprehensive component of peer sex education. Here we help girls, women to get high-quality, professional help in a friendly clinic. What does it mean? In our country, going to a gynecologist is considered a "taboo, a bad thing", a person is condemned for it and spread a lot of bad news, considered slutty and dirty. Although it is very important to visit a specialist regularly to keep your health in order.

Thirdly, access to the services of the volunteer community: organization of events, training, volunteering, access to reliable information about sexual health and rights (in the application and at training events). At the moment, we are spreading this aspect through Instagram: through digital educational and entertainment content on various topics of sexual and reproductive health. 

What specific problem are you solving?

Kyrgyzstan is a young country where almost half of the population (48.9%) is under the age of 25. The presence of a large young population is a demographic resource that requires significant investment in the well-being and development of children. The strategic importance of further investment in children, youth and families reflects the country's development prospects.

There are young people who do not have access to information about sexual health, and especially, guys from remote regions of our country. It's great that now technologies have become more developed, now there is the Internet in villages, but problems with "forbidden topics for conversation", reproductive health of people remain there. Young girls get married early, not of their own free will, sometimes get unwanted pregnancy early, are subjected to all kinds of violence and femicide... Young people from the regions did not have knowledge about their body, health, rights and thus, this application will provide access to reliable, high-quality information to all people of anyone, so that they have the opportunity to easily get information related to sexual health, but if they did not find the answer to their question, you can seek advice. In addition, in the application you can get acquainted and make an appointment at a friendly clinic providing reproductive health services, and it is important to mention the last direction of "community volunteers", warm meetings, organization of events, trainings, sessions, etc., contributing to the development of the leadership and human potential of young people.

2. Inclusion in programs: in our projects and programs, we prioritize inclusion. We develop our initiatives taking into account the diverse needs and challenges faced by different communities, especially those on the sidelines. Our solutions are designed to be accessible and relevant to everyone.
