Women and girl's rights in Sierra Leone: Let Us Know!

No hay votos aún

Author: Olabisi Olu Garrick, February 23 2015 - Despite my fourteen years as a journalist, I didn’t always want to work in the media. I actually wanted to be a lawyer.

The ability to hold people to account and help people understand their legal rights always appealed to me. Little did I know that a chance meeting with a woman one sunny afternoon would change my life.

Fecha de Publicación: 
Octubre 1, 2017

The purpose of this guide from the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) is to provide a selection of "Essential Elements" and tools to guide the creation, or strengthening, of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) programmes for youth aged 15 to 24 in Egypt. The guide is designed to teach these essential SBCC elements and to help users apply the elements to their own work using a set of included worksheets. It is derived from the Urban Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health Social and Behavior Change Communication Implementation Kit (see Related Summaries, below), adapted to the Egyptian context for youth living in both urban and rural contexts. The guide also has broader information and application for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and the Essential Elements described can be used for other geographic settings, health topics, or age groups.

The report forms part of the "HC3 in Action" series, which seeks document and synthesise the HC3 project's experiences and lessons learned on topics that cut across the project's diverse portfolio of activities.

"Both anecdotal and empirical evidence suggests that ...a significant proportion of women survivors of intimate partner violence choose community-based alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms to help address the violence they are facing.

This report from Beyond Borders, Center for Domestic Violence Prevention (CEDOVIP), and the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) examines how well ADR mechanisms have addressed violence for women around the world by asking the following questions:
