Photography Diary in Africa

Posted on diciembre 6, 2011. Filed under: Reseña |

In Dakar, Senegal was the 2011 International Conference on Family Planning: Research and Best Practices. Between November 29 to December 2, 2011 at the Le Meridien President Conference Center.  Family Planning is the best way in that women can achieve their goals. It is about improve the present through education and prevention for having a best future.

How to participate, Communicate & Advocate: A Policy Communication workshop to increase youth participation. In this session I learned how to identify communication objectives to developed message using appropriate data to dialogue with Policymakers. Also, I gained knowledge about how to be concisely in 60 second when youth have to speaking with Policy Audiences.

Alexandra Hervish is a Policy Analyst in the Population Reference Bureau in United State. Here, she was teach us how to build a better Power Point to deliver more engaging, informative and persuasive presentation to help the cause.

“Social media is important to promote Family Planning because is the best way to communicate with all the young in their language. Besides, you can lead with political or policy change through to engage the government, news media and other organization in the cause. Furthermore, it’s challenging manage my blog because I have to make a research before I post something in it. This is important to promote real information about sexuality”.

In other session, Rebecca Willet of Planned Parenthood talked about promotion through interactive tools to promote sexual information to young people. She was explaining that the challenge is connect young people to email about Sexual and Reproduction Health. Also, Willet said that the phone technology is easy, informative and useful. On the other hand, the text/chat focus is abortion, pregnancy testing, sexual transmission diseases. The advantage is the internationality of this tool, this will help to provide Universal Access and eradicate social taboos.

Here Jessie Clyde, from the IPPF in New York was making a presentation about the Factors that affect minor’s experiences of legal abortion in Mexico. She explained that the 80% of participant felt confidentiality. Also, she talked about the Post abortion contraception that is accepted among young today. On the other hand, to promote a better service, there is a youth friendly services in the clinics. In this way, all the youth can feel more comfortable.

The session: Understanding creatives routes for development of communication for Family Planning in India, it’s about a campaign tagline is: Husband and wife interaction, leads to a healthy wife and family. This is about make a SMART decision to achieve a desired family size because the “Macho men culture” implies that while the woman has many children represent the manhood of them. This campaign have a focus in planning and this make me thought that in Latin America we need to make a similar campaign because here there is the “Macho men culture” and woman have difficulties to empowerment their lives. Sometimes men don’t understand that family planning represent quality of life.

In conclusion, the experience in the International Conference was great. I learned a lot about the importance of Family Planning. This can help to maintain a balance population in the world. This topic should be a World Priority to improve the present and bring a better future to the next generations. In addition, I met many people, I made friends and enjoy the travel. I’m grateful with the International Planned Parenthood Federation for sponsoring my travel to Africa. This was of great benefit to me and the knowledge obtained may be make more efficient my participation in PROFAMILIA.
