Uganda Health Communication request

Janice Windbourne - Otterbein University with a request related to health communication action in Uganda.

Hello All,

I am going to Uganda in May. I am interested in Entertainment Education and radio, in particular, health communication in general.

We are likely to be up near Arua, and I am looking for contacts who are working in EE and/or radio up in that area. I have tried to contact a women's radio group (Uganda Women's Media Association) whose description I found through Communication Initiative, but their addresses seem to be outdated.

Is there anyone out there who is working in Uganda who might be able to speak with me about what is going on there with respect to health communication?

I will appreciate any response.

Janice Windbourne

Virginia Williams from New View Media responds to Janice Windborne's request for insights into health communication action in Uganda.

Hi Janice, I have a few suggestions for you. You might look into SASA! or “Raising Voices” — They are quite an active HIV/AIDS/GBV prevention group there: www.raisingvoices.org.

You also might try contacting the Makere School of Public Health in Kampala, I’m sure they’d have some great info: http://www.musph.ac.ug. Finally, PSI, Abt, World Vision, CARE, UNDP, UNFPA and the IRC, they’ve done a bit of work there as well. I hope this isn’t running over territory you already have and is helpful.

I’m planning to move there by Feb 1 (provided I find a job) so stay in touch! The latter was a big hint for anyone who is reading this— C4D, SBCC Trainer/Advisor seeks long term post/consultancy in Kampala.

Best of luck,

Virginia

Camille Collins Lovell - Pathfinder International responds to Janice Windborne's request related to health communication action in Uganda

Hello Janice

As part of the GREAT project, Pathfinder International, has produced a radio serial drama around the issues of young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights in Northern Uganda. You can see other materials that are also part of the GREAT toolkit here

USAID supports Georgetown University’s Institute of Reproductive Health (IRH) in partnership with Save the Children and Pathfinder International to implement the Gender Roles, Equality, and Transformations (GREAT) Project in northern Uganda. The GREAT Project supports adolescents 10 to 19 years of age to achieve their hopes and dreams through improving reproductive health, safety from gender-based violence and equal opportunities for boys and girls.

We’d be happy to tell you more about the project, and the radio drama in particular, which is currently on air, and to put you in touch with our staff in Uganda. Feel free to contact me directly.
