Too soon?🥰 We miss you. 💜 #AFJ
A disgrace that one of Uganda039;s best couldn039;t get a spot in the hospital he039;s served for years. Do the rest of us stand a chance? We will never host Dr Charles Kiggundu, a champion for #srh, but we are fortunate to have interacted with him as journalists. What a loss! Sleep well, doc. We demand working health systems for all! 💜 #AFJ #sexualandreproductivehealth #unsafeabortion #PostAbortionCare #COVID19 #SRHR #gyn

Do help us wish a happy birthday to Queen @kakagaadju Guess she’d ask you lot to #maskup as a gift to her😍 💜AFJ
Each year, 16 million girls (15-19) give birth in developing regions ~ Plan International. We know even under 15s do as well. Our 7th episode in season 2 tackles teenage pregnancy coupled with child marriage. We should all be unsettled. Let’s not even call them teens, they’re children - Ann Better to say girls lives interrupted as when you say teen, it seems far removed from the reality - JK As we grow up as young girls we need to know that we have the power of saying no - demanding that we use conception barriers ~ Flory In our UNICE Spotlight initiative, we found in Kitgum, about 1519 below 18 had gone to visit a health centre for antenatal care - not all cases are documented. The chances of girls returning to school are low ~ Cathy #realconvoiow
Ann - I will keep living. This question is problematic because marriage is not an achievement! JK - Why are we constantly bombarded with such silly questions? Flory - Societal expectations patriarchy, it039;s how the society was set up - so ingrained in our minds! This topic deserves all the anger we can give it. Harriet - From the day a girl is born, she039;s looked at as a wife - it039;s the end goal and women aspire to it. Patriarchy has both genders captive by the way and it039;s sad when women are the drivers. 💜AFJ #realconvoiow
The impact of #SelfJudgement We worry about being judged as weak or unstable, so we learn to bury our struggles and not let on that anything is wrong. But as we fear judgements from others, we may also be judging ourselves, and if we don039;t accept our illness, this perpetuates our shame. When we resist what is, when we make who we are or what we feel wrong, we039;re adding another layer to our suffering. When we can find acceptance for our struggles, our relationship with illness begins to change. There039;s new found compassion for all our struggles and we find patience when we hit an emotional low. As Nayyirah Waheed said, "It is being honest about my pain, that makes me invincible." So on #WorldMentalHealthDay, as you contemplate your own life, 💜 think about ways to please shine a little light on your struggles 💜be tender with yourself 💜challenge your self judgements and, 💜find acceptance for the entirely of who you are. ~ #DailyCalm PS: We are short of a body if anyone wants to join us for this chat on #mentalhealth, please do comment or inbox and we will send you the zoom link. Show is in an hour039;s time. It039;ll be short.
You get to a point where you have to compromise most things and you have to ask yourself about the value you get out of whatever you choose. Try dedicating intentional time to certain things. If I don’t want to do it, I would straight up say no. ~JdB Family cheats work more than work cheats family and as a consultant, I get to prioritise the former more - Ann No balance really, but it’s good to have an understanding partner (and family/friends)- Flory It should be the equal prioritisation of both your career and your life. For me #worklifebalance is not achievable at this point - JK We are thankful to have had the brilliant @joydoreenbiira join us for this #realconvoinow
Is there any such thing as a perfect pregnancy? Do we understand pregnancy as we grow up and when we do, do we ever have any fears? Which ones stand out for you? What are those things you wish you had known about before finding out you were pregnant? If you follow Chrissy Teigen039;s life, you know she lost her lovely son Jack through a #miscarriage. There are more Chrissys globally. Miscarriages are more common than anyone cares to admit - happening 20% of pregnancies. Join us for a neglected #realconvoiow this Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. See you real soon.
It’s no secret that the burden of preventing pregnancy falls disproportionately on women. There’s that unequal burden. It039;s no secret too that millions of women have unintended pregnancies with many ending up in (unsafe) #abortions. We are excited to have the nontiring #HealthRights Lawyer @kwagalaprimah join us on #WorldContraceptionDay to talk about #unintendedpregnancies & #unsafeabortion. Tune in at 4pm Ug 2pm UK 9am US (NC) 💜AFJ #realconvoiow
Let039;s call all body parts by their names, a vagina is a vagina ~ JK Isn039;t it so liberating to call a vagina a vagina? ~ Ann You come out of the vagina, and then you039;re coming out with a vagina of your own, why shouldn039;t you understand, what a #vagina is? ~ Flory I039;m going to insert the speculum down there, and then I told her, you mean in my vagina? ~ Harriet Anena #realconvoiow
It039;s amazing that the the brilliant, articulate, but most importantly #womenrights advocate Mercy is joining us for the #realconvoiow Mercy has previously worked for #FIDAUganda whose focus is on access to justice for women, enhancing gender responsive governance, and women’s social economic justice. See you in a few - top of the hour! 💜AFJ
