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.
From the BBC Media Action website: BBC Media Action is using media and communication to provide access to information and create platforms to enable some of the poorest people in the world to take part in community life, and to hold those in power accountable. A focus on programming that directly engages people in debate and discussion also encourages communication across political, ethnic, religious and other divides in society.
"Women working in global supply chains, many of whom are young and undereducated migrants, have limited health knowledge and often lack access to critical health services and products. Myths and misconceptions, especially stigmas around reproductive health, lead to unhealthy or dangerous behavior." - HERhealth
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.
"This study aims at understanding the role of ICT [information and communication technology] in realising women's rights, gender equality and women's economic empowerment in order to identify challenges and opportunities for women and girls to partake in ICT education and employment."
The research used a two-fold methodology, a desk study and biographical interviews, to portray women working in ITC in developing and emerging countries. The report was commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and prepared by Panoply Digital in collaboration with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH with input from numerous members of the G20 Development Working Group (DWG) and other organisations.
This brief describes key examples, challenges, insights, and resources to emerge from Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) initiatives to improve sexual and reproductive health outcomes for youth and adolescents, ages 10 to 24, around the world. Working in support of United States Agency for International Development (USAID)'s Youth in Development Policy, HC3 has developed tools that can be adapted by programme managers to ensure that social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) programming for youth is based on evidence and strategic principles. 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.
"Despite frequent calls to focus programming and research on soft skills, little attention has been placed on understanding how these skills are built and what practitioners should do to foster them. This report fills the gap by identifying six guiding principles for effective skill-building programs."
"ALL IN...recognizes the importance of a holistic, multi-sectoral approach towards addressing risk and vulnerability in adolescents, seeking to drive this fast-track effort through partnerships that combine forces to improve leadership, commitment, investments and programmes, and strengthen data, implementation and systems for adolescent engagement across a wide range of areas..."
"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. Research finds that as many as 80 percent of disputes made public in the Global South are addressed through the informal justice system."
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:
This description of the Logical Levels of Change, a behavioural model by Robert Dilts, details strategies of using it as a framework for designing, reviewing, and enhancing health promotion interventions, illustrated with the example of condom use and the tools of "The Complete Condom Training Kit" from Bridges of Hope Training, a South African organisation whose goal is the empowerment and motivation of individual "to maintain their health, live positively and realize their life goals and dreams.
According to the model, change or maintenance of a particular behaviour must be supported at various "neurological levels", labeled "Environment", "Skills and Capabilities", "Beliefs and Value", and "Identity", with selected examples of statements and questions as follows:
