A Holistic Approach to Reproductive Health Interventions: Talk 2 Me Case Study

OO Isikwenu, J Omokiti, D Nurudeen

Abstract


The Talk 2 Me project is a good example of putting knowledge into action and trying out best practices gained from conferences. The design of this project was based on knowledge shared by Straight Talk Foundation of Uganda during
the 2008 “Investing in Young People's Health and Development: Research that Improves Policies and Programs” in Abuja, Nigeria. The idea was to use peer educators in secondary schools to facilitate discussions on sexuality,
HIV/AIDS, STIs, and other reproductive health issues. The innovative strategy was to record the stories of students as they were discussed and to publish them in a monthly newsletter (Talk2Me). The newsletters were shared among young people in and out of school, so they could learn from the discussions in the different school groups (Afr J Reprod Health 2010; 14[4]: 147-148).
