The key to educational success lies in the health and well-being of young people

Dar es Salaam, United Republic of Tanzania – WEBWIRE

UNESCO through the Our Rights, Our Lives, Our Future Plus project also known as the O3 Plus project has handed over to Dar es Salaam University College of Education (DUCE) the newly renovated buildings; a counseling center, and a Youth health center waiting room (this is a key step towards increasing health service uptake among students at campus).

“We believe that these improvements will increase motivation for young people in getting information and health services at their campus, hence enabling them to take care of their health and be able to reach their educational potential” - Mr. Mathias Herman, National Programme Officer

The renovation of health facilities is also taking place at the University of Dar es Salaam (Mwalimu Nyerere campus) and the University of Dodoma.

Furthermore, apart from these renovations, UNESCO is also reaching over 100,000 learners in 17 universities in Tanzania through various interventions including the establishment of 14 gender desks in colleges, the provision of CSE online course, provider-led peer assisted program, and training of health service providers on the provision of friendly health services to young people.

Our Rights, Our Lives, Our Future (O3 Plus) project seeks to ensure that young people in higher and tertiary education institutions (HTEIs) in Tanzania realize positive health, education and gender equality outcomes through sustained reductions in new HIV infections, unintended pregnancy and sexual and gender-based violence.
