Youth Hackathon on Sexual and Reproductive Health

Shamseya, along with Health 2.0 Egypt and UNFPA Egypt, has successfully completed the Youth Health Challenge on Sexual and Reproductive Health.

We reached out to the youth in Beni Sueif and Assiut solve one of the most pressing issues in the healthcare sector in Egypt and increase the reach of sexual and reproductive health services to Egyptian Youth. 

The program was designed to support the innovation and talents of Egyptian Youth through mentorship and training. We’ve received 63 great ideas of which we selected 6 to continue to the next phase. After months of preparation, organization and follow-ups. We have listened to 6 great pitching sessions of the competing projects, and the first and second prize winners were selected.

Both teams showed great innovation in their projects in increasing accessibility to sexual reproductive health services and are currently working on launching their projects off the ground.

Congratulations to the winning teams ElMokhtas for the second prize, and Gwana for the first prize.
