Review for Roots of Health, Puerto Princesa, Palawan, , Philippines
I am very much impressed with the work of ROH to advance the SRHR of especially adolescents in Palawan. The teaching team is highly qualified and made of young people, including young volunteers (youth advocates) having been trained by ROH. They are able to relate easily to young people in schools and communities. The local and cultural context in which they are operating is challenging and demands for e.g. a high level of sensitivity and diplomacy. The need of young people in Palawan to access SRH services, non-judgmental and correct information is just huge. ROH serves and informs them, so that they are able to protect themselves against unwanted pregnancies, STIs and HIV… in an environment that vastly ignores or does not respond to their needs.
