Videos

We’ve produced hundreds of videos over the years. Some record the amazing stories of the people we help. Others were developed as part of our campaigns and projects around the world. Below are some of the latest and the best.

 


Watch this compelling video, where the traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony is integrated with a community-based intervention to provide information, improve gender equity and intra-couple relations, and change norms and behavior around intimate partner violence and HIV.


 

Listen as students and facilitators introduce EngenderHealth’s Re:MIX, a comprehensive sexual health program aimed at preparing youth for healthy futures by reducing rates of unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Re:MIX pairs peer educators who are young parents with professional health educators to cofacilitate this health curriculum among a target population of 13–17-year-olds. In addition to the curriculum, the intervention includes a professional development, leadership, and mentoring program for the peer educators and a community health services linkage system that connects youth and peer educators with community resources and services through an online mobile app.

The curriculum is being delivered by a team of peer educators who are young parents and by health educators from local community clinics. The innovative curriculum utilizes game-based tools, technology, and storytelling to provide students with opportunities to learn and practice the crucial skills that teens need, while integrating hip hop and theater techniques to meet young people where they are, culturally and socially.

The program also emphasizes the impact that empowerment and positive youth development have on young parents by providing them with professional development and leadership programming. The digital story series (above) is an expression of their personal growth and development.

 


EngenderHealth’s Expanding Access to Intrauterine Device Services in India (EAISI) project works to expand women’s access to and use of contraception in two states of India—Rajasthan and Gujarat. Learn more about EAISI in the words of the clients and providers who have learned and benefited from the project.

 



Through the ACQUIRE Project, EngenderHealth partnered with the Center for Digital Storytelling and St. Joseph’s Hospital in Uganda to coordinate a workshop for Ugandan women who have experienced obstetric fistula. The resulting videos recount hardships and celebrate achievements related to their daily struggles with pregnancy, loss, relationships, as well as their search for safety, acceptance, and dignity.

 


From the beginning of time, women have wanted to decide for themselves if and when to have children. As a result, they’ve endured some of history’s worst contraceptives. It’ll make you say, “Ewww.” So, WTFP?! Where’s The Family Planning?!
