Over the weekend, actors Adjetey Anang and Jackie Appiah were honoured by the Ghana Health Service for their work in promoting adolescent reproductive health rights in Ghana.
The two A-list actors play the lead characters in popular Tv series YOLO [You Only Live Once], an entertainment drama series which educates and promote positive health behaviours directed at youth, including reproductive health, malaria prevention, and nutrition.
At a gathering on October 22 to celebrate GoodLife campaign and many other accomplishments by the USAID and Ghana Health Service, Jackie and Adjetey were honoured for their contributions.
“20 years of promoting adolescent reproductive health issues and healthy living.” Adjetey Anang captioned a photo of him and Jackie Appiah with their citations on his Instagram page.
YOLO is a part of the “Good Life, Live it Well” campaign that promotes positive health behaviours.
Since 2016, the United States, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), has worked with the Ghana Health Service and the National Population Council and provided financial support to produce the YOLO series.
