HIV/AIDS I.E.C. Materials

Status: Just started
Step: 
1

We are in need of HIV/AIDS Information Education Communication Materials to be tailor made to Kenya Sign Language for our behavior change programme. Any neighbor out there who is willing to help? Ideas or ready posters are most welcome.

The materials should be encouraging condom use, faithfulness or abstinence from sex. Materials discouraging retrogressive cultural practices like FGM, polygamous marriages are also welcome.

Thank you.

Solomon.

Hi Solomon

You could try contacting Bramuel http://www.nabuur.com/en/user/barasa/profile who is the Local Rep for Kayole-Soweto http://www.nabuur.com/en/village/kayole-soweto/project

They run Arrow Weh Hospital in Nairobi and, as well as providing treatment to patients, they also do community health education including on HIV/AIDS. I know they have managed to get a supply of leaflets etc, so he may be able to tell you where he got them from. I do not know whether he has anything that is specifically designed for deaf people, but I am sure you could adapt material if required.

Also try Ojok Eric http://www.nabuur.com/en/user/ojok-eric/profile
He is in Uganda, where he is the national contact for the Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS. I know he talks to people involved with HIV/AIDS training in Kenya, so he may be able to put you in touch with someone who can help.

There are many organisations around the world who might be able to provide you with materials, but if you can get them locally, it will be quicker and more likely to match with any cultural needs.

Dear Eric,

Wonders never cease! Truly this is your area of concern. I have gone to the websites you referred me to and they have wonderful resource materials. In a nutshell let me say that we have gotten what we wanted and please allow me to say that you are one of those wonderful neighbors at nabuur. As you probably know most HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment services do not target people with hearing impairment. We are just trying to do what we can and the networks you talked about could be very useful.

Am sure there is so much you can help us with in this area particularly in making this department strong at Furaha and I take this opportune moment to invite you to our village. I will also pay a visit to KANCO soon and see how we can network and engage the resources we have for our mutual benefits.

Neighbors have a habit of appearing and disappearing at will. Please do not disappear and let us keep in touch. To the other neighbors my advice is: keep it Nabuur. Though things may be slow at times, I now testify that it it works.Please introduce your friends to our village.

Thank you so much Eric.

Solomon.
