YOLO is an award-winning original TV series that addresses socio-cultural factors impeding young people’s awareness of reproductive health issues. It is a fun adolescent reproductive health advocacy campaign by the National Population Council.

In order to assess the effect of the award-winning series on the youth of Ghana, a new TV series “What Do YOLO Mean To Me” has been launched.

Over the years, Farmhouse Productions has dealt with difficulties and possibilities in Ghana in the field of the television drama “YOLO -You Only Live Once.”

The project is supported by the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Ghana Education Service (GES), national populations council, national youth authority, and a breakthrough initiative of the United States International Development Agency (USAID).

The 13-episode series “What Does YOLO Mean To Me” shows immersive speeches covering subjects such as sexual assault, abuse, menstruation, cyberbullying, teacher/student interactions, narcotics, and alcohol.

Madam Stefanie Sullivan, in her speech via video at the launch of the US Ambassador to Ghana, said that the YOLO series was drawn to represent the hope of a healthier and better future for young people in Ghana and the globe.

“The active participation and leadership of youth in society are vital to a country’s development. We know the challenges such as youth unemployment and teenage pregnancy that impede the need for participation of young people. YOLO tackles these important issues in real, frank, and open discussion,’’ she said.

Mrs. Sullivian said that, especially in these tough times of COVID–19, the U.S. is dedicated to bringing young people into Ghana’s growth.

His keynote speech by Mr Kofi Issah, director of the Family Health Division in the GHS, emphasised the need for youth investment, since it reflects the priority of society.

Mr. Issah says the current series would strengthen the maternal health message in the previous seasons and will consider other ways to take the series back home if adolescent pregnancies become more common.
