Media for SRHR

Posted By January 12, 2022

The mass media have excellent potential to promote good sexual and reproductive health outcomes, but around the world, media often fail to prioritize sexual and reproductive health and rights issues or report them in an accurate manner. In sub-Saharan Africa media coverage of reproductive health issues is poor due to the weak capacity and motivation for reporting these issues by media practitioners. Our experiences and reflections, and the experiences of others indicate that a sustained mix of strategies that motivate, strengthen capacity of, and build relationships between journalists and researchers can be effective in enhancing quality and quantity of media coverage of research.

Our Focus 

Strengthening the SRH and Media COP so that they will be effective disseminate the knowledge products available in the country. To share progress updates on the area of SRHR to members and t0 increase the quality of reporting on the topics of SRHR.

What we do

Train journalists on media reporting and SRGR policy and practice. Further the media CoP members will share the experiences they have with other media outlets.
