Victoria, Canada, Communication Initiative, 2002 Dec 19. 2 p.Implemented in 2001 by UNICEF-Peru as part of a five-year initiative, this programme addresses the issue of children's, adolescents', and women's rights by bolstering interpersonal communication skills among public services workers, intermediaries between supply and demand (community agents, teachers, and community leaders), and families and individuals. The programme, which includes remote communities of the Andes and Amazon in its reach, draws on the use of culturally relevant and non-threatening messages to increase the participation of communities and families so they can demand that their rights be respected. Other features of the project include providing technical assistance to improve communication among those who provide basic services, and revamping the manner in which the media treats issues related to children and women's rights.

In: UNESCO. Regional Office for Asia and Oceania. Population Education Clearing House. Population education as integrated into development programs: a non-formal approach. Bangkok, Thailand, UNESCO Regional Office for Asia and Oceania, 1980. 15 p. (Series 1, Pt. 5)A compendium of abstracts of selected handbooks, case studies and monographs is presented. These abstracts describe how youth programs of various development agencies all over the region have innovatively involved the out-of-school youth in learning population education concepts and practices. A comprehensive inventory of case studies of organizations involved in educating the out-of-school youth on population education concepts in many Asian countries is provided. A variety of alternative strategies and approaches have been tried and tested in many pilot projects. The range of alternatives includes summer camps, vocational and income-generating activities, parents and youth clubs, and youth organizations via the medium of music, sports, education, work and others. A more significant feature of the abstracts is the consolidation of lessons learned from these activities as well as guidelines from these lessons which can be used for planning, designing, implementing and evaluating out-of-school population education programs.
SUC KHOE SINH SAN / REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH. 2001; 3-5.In 1997, Vietnam was one of the countries selected to participate in the EC/UN Population Fund program on regional initiatives to improve reproductive health in Asia countries. Two complementary projects, RAS/98/023 and RAS/99/P54 were approved and carried out in two provinces of Vietnam: Hanoi and Ninh Binh. Under these projects, young people are reached with an information support system focusing more on working with parents. A second strategy is ensuring that provision of information is backed up by provision of services. A third strategy is ensuring active youth participation. A fourth is ensuring that discussions on RH are informative, but more important, enjoyable. A combination of qualitative and quantitative methods was used to analyze the results. The findings revealed that there is a need to enable communities to provide sex education for adolescents, increased resources based within communities, increased receptiveness to and comfort in discussing RH and sexuality. and increased use of services at community health centers.
