Stichting Lobi (LOBI)
LOBI is a leading organization delivering high quality sexual and reproductive health services in Suriname through three clinics nationwide. Its services include contraceptives, gynecological care, Pap tests, pregnancy tests, pre- and post-abortion care, and HIV and STI prevention and testing. Its sliding scale fee structure ensures vulnerable and marginalized people are able to access care, and LOBI meets an estimated 60% of Suriname’s sexual and reproductive health needs.
LOBI has a separate building for youth activities, and youth-friendly services are integrated into its health services. It trains young people to be peer health educators and advocates, who run LOBI’s youth space. It is a lively meeting place where young people can access internet-ready computers and produce televised skits that educate about sexual and reproductive health issues.
