Soap Operas for Social Change to Prevent HIV/AIDS: A training guide for journalist and media personnel

Dear Friends,

I found this material on line and i think it might be useful to some of us. it is Published in 2005, this 74-page guide is designed to be used by journalists and media personnel to plan and execute the production and broadcast of Sabido-style entertainment-education serial dramas for HIV/AIDS prevention, especially among women and girls. This is part of UNFPA’s strategy to reinforce the capacities of journalists at the country level to prepare them to be informed agents of gender- and culturally-sensitive HIV prevention programs.

Ideally, the guide will serve as a reference tool during training workshops for journalists and media personnel organized by Population Media Center (PMC), and other institutions interested in reinforcing the capacities of journalists to convey effective messages on HIV/AIDS prevention.

Thus, the guide seeks to familiarize journalists and media personnel with the Sabido methodology for social change using entertainment-education format serial dramas broadcast over mass media channels (such as radio and television).
