Fadal Dey : L'engagement de l'homme : RESPOND Project Cote d'IvoireAs part of the RESPOND Project in Cote d'Ivoire, EngenderHealth produced a song and short video to encourage men's participation in HIV services and prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT). The song was produced in collaboration with Ivoirian pop star, Fadal Dey, and local partner REPMASCI (Réseau des Professionnels des Medias des Arts et du Sport engagés dans la lutte contre le sida et les autres pandémies en Côte d'Ivoire).
The RESPOND Project, managed by EngenderHealth, expands family planning services and improves reproductive health in developing countries around the world. Supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), RESPOND aims to increase access to a range of contraceptives, with particular focus on long-acting and permanent methods. These effective methods (implants, IUDs, and male and female sterilization) remain underutilized in many developing countries, even though they are safe, convenient, and cost-effective.
