The first SheDecides Festival in Uganda
6th March 2019
SheDecides Uganda marked the 2nd global SheDecides Day with their usual zeal. 1000 people came together for the SheDecides Festival, the first of its kind, organised in Kampala by the brilliantly active team of SheDecides Champion Patrick Mwesigye.
Over 1000 people enjoyed the festival, focused on the theme Stand Up, Speak Out and Take Action for Women and Girls to Decide Freely and Without Question. There was a fantastic range of performers and entertainers and more than 300 people accessed services, which included HIV testing, counselling, family planning info and breast cancer screenings. SheDecides Uganda is uniting many partners, and the Festival was supported by the government of Belgium as well as Girls Not Brides Uganda, Reproductive Health Uganda, Action for Health Uganda, Reach a Hand Uganda, Public Health Ambassador Uganda, Marie Stopes, UYAHF, and UNFPA.
