Edutainment activities for treatment adherence

BOHT demo

Peter Labouchere

This four-minute video of a participatory demonstration by Bridges of Hope Training of some 'edutainment' activities around treatment adherence was taken during the 2nd International Workshop on HIV Adolescence

Bridges of Hope Training uses a unique methodology which integrates and applies a range of key concepts and research related to social and behaviour change communication (SBCC). The methodology was applied initially with a community focus on HIV-related issues, but has proven effective with a variety of target groups in different contexts, including banking and mine employees, support groups for people living with HIV, prisons, youth, community and faith based groups. It has also proven highly effective (when appropriately adapted for context and target groups) when applied to a range of other issues, including Malaria, TB, Family Planning, Maternal Newborn and Child Health, Ebola and Financial Wellness.
