Chief Chikanta says discussing sex no longer a taboo


Chief Chikanta in Southern Province says traditions and norms should no longer be a barrier to disseminating information about sexual reproductive health to young people.

The traditional leader tells Byta FM News that the current generation needs adequate information about the dangers surrounding sexual reproductive health in order to protect them.

He states that it is no longer a taboo to talk about issues of sex with young people, because of many sexually transmitted infections affecting youths.

Chief Chikanta has since encouraged parents to openly talk about issues of sex, with the aim of protecting the lives of young generations, and the future at large.

On Monday, Health minister Chitalu Chilufya launched the 2018 safe motherhood week, which runs from the 13th to 19th May, 2018 and running under the theme, “Universal access to sexual reproductive health.”
