SBCC Integrated Session Guides [Namibia]

This material is part of the “Break the Chain” campaign which a segment of the “Take Control” Campaign in Namibia to reduce HIV/AIDS infections. “Break the Chain” had as its objectives to raise awareness about sexual networks, to promote clear strategies to reduce risks caused by being involved in sexual networks, and to address the underlying issues which cause individuals to have concurrent partners.

There are separate Session Guides for:

  • Youth ages 10-14
  • Youth ages 15-24
  • Adults aged 25-49
  • Men who have sex with men
  • Sex workers

[The document attached to this page includes all of the Guides in one file]

The Guides were developed in 2009-2010 at the request of public sector, civil society and private sector implementing partners in Namibia, who urgently required integrated guides that included sessions for specific age groups focusing on the drivers of HIV/AIDS. The Guides consist of participatory sessions that can be implemented by field workers and volunteers in communities, workplaces and clinical settings to generate discussion on the drivers of the epidemic with target audiences.

The Guide includes some or all of the following modules:

  • Self-esteem
  • Delayed sexual debut and abstinence
  • Alcohol and HIV
  • Multiple and concurrent partnerships
  • Transactional sex
  • Cross-generational sex
  • HIV counseling and testing
  • Male circumcision
  • Condom use
