Meet Ruth a Community Health Nurse

Ruth Samsin is a registered Community Health Nurse from the Talek Health Facility and part of the Youth Friendly Centre (YFC) staff. She describes the impact that the centre’s adolescent sexual health and reproductive services have had on young people and more specifically young mothers (under 18) specifically in terms of their confidence levels.

“The YFC has contributed to improving client confidentiality, particularly for young mothers under the age of 18 who have visited Talek health facility for both Antenatal Care and Postnatal Care. These young mothers could easily open up about their health and how they want their lives to change during their monthly visits. Some of them leave counselling sessions with a positive mind-set on how to improve their life, both socially professionally/economically.”
