Reproductive Health Awareness and Its Importance
When you talk about reproductive health and healthcare, there is a whole lot of different of ideas that will come to mind as it is a very broad concept, to begin with.
It covers so many aspects and factors that can be complex and it does not focus only or limited to a single gender, but for both young or old and they are being equally treated to be the same.
It is understood that the reproductive health mainly deals with the reproductive processes, functions, and system at all stages of life and the concept about its care is equally important. Its scope does not only focus on the reproductive diseases or problems but it also covers the context of relationships as it contributes to physical and psychological aspects of a person.
Reproductive health differs in most cases from the concept of family planning and maternal and child health programmes,and even to education nowadays. In today’s generation, there are already schools that have included in their curriculum the study of sex education, the reproductive systems, its necessary care and all the information relating to it. This is to ensure that children will have the awareness of what the reproductive system is and what are the factors that may help them become more responsible in their actions and attitude towards it.
Nonetheless, studies still show that despite these efforts, the younger generations are more reckless and not responsible enough to give much weight to the effects of improper reproductive concerns that have led to health risks for many. This is resulting to unwanted pregnancies, sexually related diseases and many other circumstances that could have been prevented in the first place.
Reproductive health care effective methods such as birth control pills are somehow not available or accessible to everyone, especially for minors that will have to have their parents consent to buy it. This is so because not all countries are open to the use of contraceptives and are widely against birth control. When there are some community health centers that offer low-cost contraceptives or give them for free. It may not be available for everyone and might be limited as well.
Certain studies as of now is are being conducted to learn more about how to address the issues concerning reproductive health and its care that is far more easy to understand by the newest generation. For example there should be an advocate for the concept of reproductive and sexual health, implying the integration of reproductive health and reproductive rights into all related development priorities and programmes.
Mainly the education and awareness starts in the family, and how the child understands this until adolescence is a vital key in having a responsible perception about sexuality and its implication.
