In Senegal, PACE supports religious leaders who are working to increase knowledge among their communities about the benefits of family planning, and continues to build the capacity of the media on the multiple benefits of family planning and maternal and child health services.
PACE works with partner organizations in-country to produce effective communication materials on a broad range of subjects.
“Senegal Engage: Religion and Family Health” is a new ENGAGE presentation that serves as an advocacy tool to connect reproductive health and family planning issues with faith-based attitudes and beliefs. This presentation was developed by the PACE Project in collaboration with la Direction de la Santé de la Reproduction et de la Survie de l’Enfant at the Ministère de la Santé et de l’Action Sociale and Cadres des Religieux pour la Santé et le Développement who led a task force made up of Senegalese health experts and religious leaders. The ENGAGE presentation and supplemental materials are available in French, Arabic, and Wolof.
PACE builds the capacity of individual media members and media institutions in Senegal—so that more people can understand, use, and champion evidence about how family planning and reproductive health will contribute to long-term development.
