This is an introduction to a series of issue papers for FP/RH programme managers that consider the following questions on the subject of scaling up: How do we know when we have achieved scale? What management, technological, and human competencies are necessary to bring programmes to scale?
The report provides understanding of socio-cultural research (SRC) for programming purposes in the area of population and reproductive health. The first part of the report introduces the concept of SCR and the rationale for its use in population and RH programmes.
The publication includes a synthesis and the summarized presentations given at the Regional Consultation on Strengthening the Provision of Adolescent-Friendly Health Services in Africa which was held in Harare, Zimbabwe on 17-21 October 2000.
This tool has been prepared by FOCUS on Young Adults primarily for those who design and deliver programs and who formulate policies concerned with the well-being of young people in the developing world.
This guide provides step-by-step information on designing a participatory appraisal with adolescents to analyze their sexual and reproductive health-related concerns, and on using participatory learning and action (PLA) tools for this analysis.
In Africa, men play key roles in reproductive health - as individuals, family members, community decision-makers, and national leaders. Most reproductive health care, however, focuses on women.
The consultation was organized to explore the specific needs of ethnic minority communities in European countries for culturally and linguistically appropriate HIV/AIDS and sexual health services.
