Sex For Fees! #SRHR

This Thursday 12 March 2015, we are talking Sexual Reproductive Health on the Maternal Health Channel Television Series…. With focus on “Transactional Sex” aka “Survival Sex” or “Sex in exchange for Financial or Lifestyle rewards”

Is it really happening? Can we openly talk about it? What about its implications for Health, Population & Development?


Many young people face serious pressure, especially adolescent girls to exchange sex for money, in many cases, to pay for education or survive in a tough economic environment. The Maternal Health Channel crew visited a university campus, they bring you a real life drama that may be familiar to many of us.

Joyce needs money to pay her fees but is selling her body the only option? What are her alternatives? How does she deal with peer pressure? Make time for the show this Thursday 12 March 2015 and every other Thursday on GTV at 8 pm….. and follow the discussions!

Ready…. Camera Rolling…. ACTION! #SRHR

The Maternal Health Channel starts a brand new five part series in collaboration with DKT on some of the burning issues that inform our sexual and reproductive lives as young people. What role does sex play in our lives?

Can we talk openly about the high incidence of unwanted pregnancies and unsafe abortions in an informative way that can benefit not just us but the whole nation? What about sexually transmitted diseases, abstinence, safe sex, contraceptives and many more pressing issues facing us? How much reliable information about the real options is available to us as young people? IMG_2002 Some people may wish that such issues are not discussed publicly but the social cost to us, our families and the nation as a whole is just too high. Every year, thousands of young adolescents drop out of school due to unwanted pregnancies or die from unsafe abortions, for example.

In the coming weeks, we as young people will be discussing some of these issues illustrated by some exciting real life dramas filmed by The Maternal Health Channel crew. We will be sharing our experiences, not to mention our problems and anxieties and finding positive solutions to many of our dilemmas.  Stay Tuned!
