Millennium Fellowship Project: Let's talk about sex
People's desire to live a responsible, satisfying, and safe sex life, as well as their right to have children and the freedom to choose if, when, and how many they have, cannot be overstated. Adolescents' sexual and reproductive health needs are often unmet, despite the fact that they make up a significant proportion of the population. We are subject to a series of physiological, psychological, and social shifts in the African population that expose us to risky sexual behavior such as early sex experimentation, unprotected sex, and multiple sexual partners. If we are underprepared, this can lead to higher risks of early marriages, teenage pregnancies, unsafe abortion, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV and AIDS, and other life threatening sexual reproductive health problems. This is what birthed the idea of the awareness project. It involves educating people about all they need to know about sexual reproductive health.
About the Millennium Fellow
Joy Adeosin is a medical student at the university of Ilorin but resides in Lagos,Nigeria. For as long she remembers, she has always been ardent about helping school-age children not in school access education. This passion has propelled her to constantly develop herself and stay updated with information about education globally, and how these informations can be implemented in her own community.
Joy strongly desires to continually advocate for inclusive and quality education. She also hopes one day she would be in the space ( both global and in her own country) where policies favouring quality education are made.
