Offer: Call for articles about Reproductive Health in Nomadic Communities
Royal Tropical Institute/SAfAIDS
Deadline: 28 January 2011
Exchange is a magazine on HIV and AIDS, sexuality and gender in developing countries. It is published quarterly by the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) in collaboration with Southern Africa HIV and AIDS Information Dissemination (SAfAIDS) in South Africa.
Exchange is continuously welcoming contributions for its forthcoming issues. The articles should preferably focus on HIV in relation to gender, culture, sexual health, and sexuality and/or rights issues.
We are especially interested in receiving reflective papers from programme managers and other staff of local and national level NGOs working in the Global South about their successful and promising programmes, strategies or approaches. Please note that we prefer articles that go beyond describing a phenomenon by sharing good and
promising practice in programming or advocacy work.
The next issue of Exchange on HIV and AIDS, Sexuality and Gender will focus on sexual and reproductive health of nomadic communities. We are inviting authors in Eastern Europe, Asia, the Middle East and South America to send us articles. Articles should focus on:
- Local beliefs related to pregnancy, sexuality, reproductive issues within pastoralist/nomadic communities.
- Access of nomadic groups to sexual and reproductive health services including maternal health.
- Local practices related to birth including traditional birth attendants (TBAs).
- Decision-making and power relations in the family and community-related to health.
The deadline for submitting articles is January 28, 2011. Please contact the editor for detailed guidelines and suggestions before you start writing.
