Applying Freirian model for development and evaluation of community-based rehabilitation programmes

SHARMA, Manoj
2006

Expand view

The purpose of this article is to reify and adopt the heuristics from Paulo Freire's model of adult education for possible application in development and evaluation of community-based rehabilitation (CBR) programmes in developing countries. An extensive review of literature spanning from Freire's original writings to application of his teachings was done. Besides adult education, Freire's model has been used in community organisation, health education, alcohol and substance abuse prevention, development work in agrarian cultures, and coalition building. The effectiveness of this model has generally been measured qualitatively. In order to quantitatively transcribe this model, five distinct constructs comprising of dialogue, conscientisation, praxis, transformation, and critical consciousness were identified. Specific directions for quantitative applications for developing and evaluating community-based rehabilitation programmes using these constructs are presented. The model of Freire offers lot of potential in developing and evaluating community-based rehabilitation programmes

Operational guide on gender and HIV/AIDS : a rights-based approach | Resource pack on gender and HIV/AIDS

UNAIDS INTER-AGENCY TASK TEAM ON GENDER AND HIV/AIDS
2005

Expand view

This guide highlights the relationship between gender, rights and HIV and AIDS. The impact of HIV and AIDS tends to be greater in unequal settings and stigma and discrimination, often associated with the disease, intensify and reinforce inequality. This document, aimed at programme managers and development organisations, reflects on how gender inequality affects women affected by HIV and AIDS. It explains why women may be at greater risk of contracting the disease, while having poor access to treatment. Women also tend to assume the responsibility of caring for those who are sick, and girls in households affected by HIV are more likely than boys to be taken out of school as a cost-saving measure, and to help in domestic chores. The guide contains a set of checklists to help evaluate the level of commitment to gender equality in programming, funding, communication, networking and advocacy
