Samoa Family Health Association (SFHA) is a non-government association and most of its funding coming from donor organisations who specialise in reproductive health. SFHA’s main goal is to offer all clients a high quality, confidential and integrated services. In order to achieve this goal, SFHA engages in advocacy work at both regional and national levels, and delivers educational programmes and sexual reproductive health services to all four Samoan inhabited islands.
A key part of SFHA is to target their services and work towards supporting young people. About one-fifth of SFHA’s governing board is made up of youth representatives, so the organisation has a good understanding of specific needs. SFHA also has a group of more than 30 youth volunteers who work to educate their peers and other young people on sexual reproductive health and rights topics. These youth volunteers are also responsible for creating the organisation’s awareness collateral, such as pamphlets and monthly newsletters, as well as supporting SFHA’s monitoring and evaluation of its work through the collection of data from SFHA mobile clinics and community outreach programmes.
