The Focal Person for United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Charles Duodo said the seminar seeks to re-orient community healthcare providers and enrol more nurses capable for service delivery.

He said the nurses would act as leaders to create a safe environment for adolescents aged 10-18 years within their communities.
