Dear Friend,

This week, we have been celebrating World Health Worker Week, to acknowledge the incredible contribution of the millions of men and women working tirelessly to improve the health and lives of communities around the world. Ensuring that health workers are supported, trained, motivated, and well-resourced is central to EngenderHealth’s holistic programming approach (SEED Programming Model) and to enabling women and girls to access high-quality sexual and reproductive health services—now and for generations to come.

Diary of a Family Planning Counselor

Meet Tigist Terefe, an ambitious young health worker who provides family planning services at the Kolfe Health Center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She says, “every woman has a different story, yet it is also all the same story.” She recognizes that broader social and economic benefits are needed to support women’s health care decisions. Read her full story.

Meet Tigist Terefe.
PreventING Violence and PromotING Health Together

EngenderHealth and GreeneWorks highlighted a new generation of gender-synchronized programs that are engaging women and men, girls and boys to challenge inequitable gender norms. Held as a parallel session during the meeting of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, the event highlighted three ongoing rigorous studies, including updates on a joint project with EngenderHealth and JPAL in Ethiopia, EngenderHealth's Gender Matters project in Austin, Texas, and an intervention in Rwanda by Promundo focused on promoting equitable male and female roles in caregiving.

Screening for Intimate Partner Violence

Intimate partner violence is a global public health challenge, yet we lack reliable data from resource-limited settings. A recently published pilot EngenderHealth intervention integrating screening with family planning services in Guinea strengthened providers’ capacity to discuss IPV and counsel women on the most appropriate contraceptive options based on their personal circumstances. The providers also help develop a safety plan for women. Learn more.
