C-Channel 16 - HIV Prevention - from C-Change 

Dear Colleagues, 

C-Channel is the monthly e-newsletter from C-Change that features current 
research from the peer-reviewed literature on social and behavior change 
communication (SBCC) across HIV prevention, family planning/reproductive 
health, and malaria. Issue 16 highlights HIV prevention. Four articles explore 
sexual risk behavior in the context of HIV and STIs, one article looks at 
antiretroviral knowledge and attitudes towards HIV, and another article looks 
at church leaders? attitudes and HIV prevention messages. Three articles 
explore women?s reproductive health issues in the context of HIV. A final two 
articles are on malaria in pregnancy. Research for these articles was conducted 
in Gambia, Kenya, Madagascar, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and Brazil.

In December 2009, C-Change conducted a 
 training workshop in Nigeria for 24 NGO-based health professionals working in 
HIV prevention, using the new C-Change learning package 
 Social and Behavior Change Communication. This training is part of a larger 
focus by C-Change to build effective and sustainable SBCC capacity of local 
institutions and their professionals to carry out evidence-based interventions 
to improve the health and well-being of people in the developing world. Similar 
trainings--in <>western Kenya 
for partners implementing malaria prevention programs in Kenya, and Nairobi for 
USAID partners carrying out malaria prevention programming in Southern, West 
and East Africa--were conducted in Fall 2009, with training in Southern Africa 
scheduled for January 2010. See the C-Change website for additional information 
about the 
 learning package.

Thank you, 
The Knowledge Management Team at C-Change
