Are you a young person who would like to be assisted by a fellow young person when you need services in the area of sexual health? A person that will assist you without asking too many questions nor judge you? Well, this article is definitely meant for you. We bring forth to you seven clinics around the country that can offer you the services.


The clinics are run and owned by the Namibia Planned Parenthood Association, popularly known as NAPPA. The non-governmental organization collaborates with the Ministry of Health and Social Services, other non-governmental organizations and the International Planned Parenthood Federation(IPPF). They are in collaboration to make sure that young people get accurate information about sexual reproductive health and rights, as well as making sure that these services are made accessible and available to them.

We have free wifi at all our clinics to make sure that our young people are entertained while they wait to be assisted.
