“Tasankha” was a multi-media effort under the BRIDGE II Project, a USAID-funded five year behavior change communication program focused on promoting normative behavior change and increasing HIV preventive behaviors among the adult population in 11 districts in the southern region of Malawi,

The Our First Baby Facilitator’s Guide contains nine participatory sessions to be used in small group sessions with first-time mothers and their male partners. Sessions cover fertility, antenatal care, care of the mother during pregnancy, first-time fatherhood, birth planning/delivery, newborn and postpartum care, exclusive breastfeeding, healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy, family planning, sexually transmitted infections, HIV, and gender-based violence. 

These four posters address pregnant women, nursing women, and couples with advice from the Ministry of Health about how to keep oneself safe from infection. Click on each poster to see it larger.

This is a video series developed for pregnant women and their families promoting relevant behaviors related to maternal and newborn health. Several issues including postnatal care, essential newborn care, family planning, immunization as well as malaria prevention and treatment are discussed through the six-part series. 

This mobile application is developed to support rural women and couples to better manage and track their health, mainly during pregnancy, through delivery and after birth. Designed for use on both smart and basic phones, the approach invokes a simple, easy to navigate format containing relevant, engaging, and educational content. Key features of the app include growth-monitoring tool, scheduling for ANC and immunization visit. It is available in three languages (Amharic, Afan Oromo and Tigrigna) and no internet connection required to transfer or use the application.

This poster is designed to encourage husbands of pregnant women to accompany their wives for ANC and test for HIV. The posters can be posted at health centers, health posts, market places, development stations and other places where men frequently go to. The poster is available in Amharic, Afaan Oromo and Tigrigna.
