Bangladesh: Lessons Learned - Year 2004
Here are the main lessons learned from RHIYA Bangladesh in 2004:
Catering for parents / guardians alongside youth at project sites increases support for ASRH interventions. SC-UK has been focusing on developing Resource Centres as a convenient space within the community where young people can drop-in for awareness raising and recreational activities. Facilities are also provided for parents to be provided with information and awareness raising at the same time in a separate part of the Centre. This encourages support for ASRH activities and reassures parents about the dissemination of information viewed as highly culturally sensitive within the Bangladeshi context.
Providing condoms in a discrete but accessible location, encourages young people to use them despite shyness . MSCS focused efforts on promoting the condom as a safe means of protection against HIV/AIDS and STIs. They established a ‘condom corner’ in the service delivery centres where condoms are kept in a box so that peers can take them discretely when needed. This has worked very well during 2004.
