Today 6th April 2018 Ministry of Health in partnership with Uganda Youth and Adolescents Health Forum and the Uganda Family Planning Consortium UFPC held a half day technical meeting to revise the latest draft of the National Guidelines and Standards on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights. This comes after the same guidelines had been withdrawn by ministry of health in December 2018 siting failure to follow procedures in their passing and controversial closes in the document that hit a snag at its launch on the 2nd National Family Planning Conference in sept 2017. Recently the minister of Health Hon. Dr. Jane Ruth Acheng while meeting CSO leaders under the Uganda Family Planning Consortium advised that the guidelines must follow the right policy approval procedures and have to be endorsed by the Ministry of Health Top management, something that was earlier not done. The minister also sited controversial closes in the guidelines that conflict with the national laws majorly arround the definition of adolescents, age and what kind of SRHR services and information they are entitled The technical review meeting that sat today at Fairway Hotel in Kampala addressed the comments raised by the minister and the speaker of parliament page by page and also proposed some changes in the document to fit and align to national laws policies and values. A small technical working group will be put in place to integrate the comments raised and inputs into the policy and prepare the final draft of the policy that is due to be presented to Top management of MOH on 11th April 2018. The technical review meeting was attended by a wide range of stakeholders including young people, religious and cultural leaders, health service providers a cross-section of CSO representatives and officials from ministry of health and other line ministries.
