GIRLS, YOUNG MOTHERS URGED TO STOP RISKY BEHAVIOURS

Mokhotlong Sept. 01– Adolescent girls and young mothers have been urged to stop engaging in risky behaviours to avoid contracting infectious diseases like HIV and cervical cancer.

The appeal was made by the Public Health Nurses, Ms. ‘Noi Ramots’ekhoane from the Mokhotlong District Health Management Team (DHMT) and Mrs. ‘Makapa Kampong from Lesotho Highlands Development Authority (LHDA) Polihali Branch when speaking at the event organised to give the youth health talk at Mapholaneng on Friday.

Ms. Ramots’ekhoane said DHMT together with its partners are working tirelessly to ensure that girls and young mothers lead healthy lives but not engaging in activities that can end up ruining their future.

She said the issue of girls and young mothers who are busy practicing risky behaviours with men who work as contractors at Polihali is of great concern to stakeholders in health issues as they are putting themselves at risk of being infected with HIV/AIDS and other diseases that are sexually transmitted hence the plea to them to stop such acts by changing their behaviour.
