Malawian parents urged to allow teens use contraceptives

125

contraceptionGirl’s Empowerment Network has urged parents to encourage their daughters to use contraceptives.

In Malawi a lot of young girls indulge in premarital sex due to poverty which also drives them into prostitution and problematic relationships with older men.

According to project coordinator for Girls Empowerment Network Tassil Chipofya parents need to be involved in the fight to end premarital sex and early pregnancies.

“We are making strides to end early pregnancies by incorporating parents and girls on family planning issues,” said Chipofya.

She added that involving parents will help a lot as they will be the ones to encourage the girls to use family planning methods hence avoiding early pregnancies.

According to Chipofya, when they were involving girls only, they did not produce positive results since teenagers fear their parents will find out that they are using birth control methods.

  1. Most of these Networks are a product of stray humans. Why have today’s leaders become so idious as if they grew with these distructive rights. You see that what you call rights are breeding dump & no rights made you a better person.

  18. Let the dead bury their dead….In the devil’s kingdom, the devil, the devil has all the powers to decide. You can make the loudest noise but the final decision in the world of darkness lies in the Devil’s hands.

  19. As the reaserch has shown in Balaka that 5,000 Girls get pregnant per Month, i think it is tym for other girls in all regions to start using these contraceptives, this will help to control unwanted preg. Girls of nowdays are uncontrolable!!!

  21. Wake up Malawi….where are you going??…are you encouraging sexual intercourse among the Youths??…..God,please open your eyes….forgive us,and ofcourse do not let this happen

    • Youth will have sexual relations when they want and with whom they want.That is nature’s way.Telling them not to have sex won’t stop anyone.It is better they are informed of all the dangers so they can appreciate all the benefits.
      Abstinence and religion have no place or purpose in sex-education.

  22. nzonse mchabe,malo mowalimbikitsa kuwopa mulungu kupewa tchimo ndiye mukuwapatsa njira zopewera mimba,kd simudziwa kt akapewa tchimo ndiye kt apewa zonse,mimba,matenda,ndizonse zowononga moyo.

  23. Fascinating how most comments above display the hypocrisy and the denial in which Malawians are living. Face life head-on, bitches. Take up the pills and save the country from overpopulation that comes through your overcopulation.

    Oh that rhymed 🙂

  24. kkkkkkkk malawi wa lero. nde mwati contraceptive =injection. mmmmmmm NO. Nde mwati zibelekero zipsyelera ndi use of condom as a contraceptive method. .. uuuuuh educate me moooo

  25. Ok? Using contraceptives? Meaning that u encourage them to have sex anyhow? Instead of telling them to stop sex? Mmaso mwa ambuyanu ndithu, mituyo mumangonyamula koma mopanda kanthu eti? Mxiew

  26. Fuck u GEN! U ARE APUSS contraceptives? 4 wat? Now u promoting prostetution, fulls! Munthu azilera chan ali single? Uhule bas u all dead minded & wat will be our benefit. Nosense!

  27. I call it stupit but rather madness coz yu r promoting anawa kut azikhala nd confidence yomamenya mpira opanda ma boot, ndinu zitsiru za anthu osaganixira komwe dzko likupta, yu thnk kut matenda tithana nawo bwanj? Arrrrrrrrrh

  28. I guess it should be said that, teens should be told the negative effects of sex. All this is encouraging bad behaviours. these teens won’t work hard at school n they will end up being in great poverty. If you don’t know what these whites are after then Malawi will be in great poverty. They know that these teens will forget about contaceptives n will end up getting pregnant, their by dropping out of school. the guy will be forced to do so. The gap between the poor n the rich will increase. Just put in a way that these youth should attend school. But you will hear in a radio saying that wachinyamata ozindikila amagwritsa ntchito condom,, that’s a sgame,, why can’t you hit the main point,, tell these youth not to engage in early sex,,,,, I guess I have made myself clear

  29. I want to give a testimony on how I get cured from HIV/AIDS. As I was browsing through the internet on how to get cured, I saw a lady testimony praising DR Williams I never believe it before until I tried it and it really work for me am very happy right now may God bless him. this is an opportunity for you to get cured contact him via Williamsherbaltempel@gmail.com….. and also you can contact on whatsapp number +2348143143878 THESE ARE THE DISEASE Dr.DR WILLIAMS CAN CURED. HERPES. HIV/AIDS. CANCER. LOVE SPELL VIRUS.

  30. A Malawi lets put God first. U call names things which can enlight you and you accept things which can destroy and take you to hell. You mean we should tell kids to fornicate provided they use contraceptives. Koma umphawi siwabwino olo munthu atakuuza kuti ujambule chiphwisi ndikupatsa ndalama mpaka utalimbana nacho kujambula.kkkkkk

  31. we boys w @ risk alot i gues by this thing these nowadays girls av been given a go ahead in multiple sex relationships coz they wl only be aware of pregnancies not these infections,why not introducing strong population policies if its their aim is to reduce population?

  32. Use of contraceptive have side effect…much to those who havent yet have achild…you wl disturb ur systm,Dnt complain when u fail to get preg

  33. World is changing, what we used to teach our kids those days back can no longer work anymore, lets accept the challange world is facing, we cant keep on tell them to abstain or use condom anymore, if so they will need to try to do and try without condom as a result they will get unwanted pregnancy

    • what abt HIV-AIDS n other transmitted diseases…do u knw that this contraceptives they hav a very bad effect to a lady so as young as teen,continuous bleeding n they will not b able to have a child then they r mature coz akhala kuti system yonse yaphyelera so think of tmrw…..abstain is the solution so that they can focus on education..

    • Having a faithful partner thats what it need, boys and girls have been taught to abstain frm sexual intercose tell me how many nowdays are able to abstain? Its time now to tell malawians the only that help, children of todays are able to have sex while they are in standard 4,5,6 so even telln them to abstain its like u are telling them to do sexual intercose

    • Sammy come to think of what Jessica is saying,w@ if its your own daughter.Don’t just support ndizopusa zomwe ndi nyasi zimenezo,God says no to sex outside marriage however let it be known kuti aliyense amakolora zomwe amadzala if our kids don’t listen they will be held responsible akatenga mimba.Refrain from evil & fear God,thanks.

    • bt this people they r failing to come up with something solid that can help the youth….if they will b encouraged to use this things that means 1gal will have 10boyfriends n the boys will do the same so 2 of them will hav HIV what will happen to rest that means the future generation will b disaster n no babies coz their system will b already damaged…..most of the ladies these days r failing to concive bcoz of that

    • then if this way has a side effect, Government has to put another way apart frm abstain, if u tell me about abstain only iwill not accept that coz so many youngstars are failing to do so, its different with our time when H.I.V was only a fearful deadly disease which everyone was afraid of, nowadays H.I.V its like a life style telln them to have a faithful ones to those they cnt abstain,

    • I hope and bliv condomz r also part of maleledwe, mwana wa zaka 16-20 kumuuza kut kugonana mwakut mwakut kawiri kawiri samamva coz amakhala kut ma hormones ake ali pa hyper , nde kwaine akabwera kut akufuna akufuna kulela ndimupasa kma ndimuuza kuyipa kwake asakhe yekha

  34. first it was abstain, then use a condom, now use contraceptives, kenako it will be. . Malawian teens urged to bear less than three children
