Unite for a Better Life: Leveraging Podcasts to Prevent Intimate Partner Violence
Dr. Vandana Sharma and Machrine Birungi highlight good practices and challenges from developing and testing the Unite for a Better Life (UBL) podcast series to prevent intimate partner violence in a Somali refugee setting.
The UBL podcast series is an innovative, gender-transformative programme that builds on the Somali tradition of storytelling. Podcast episodes, including dramas, interviews, and debates, were co-created by Somali refugees and broadcast at listening centres in the Bokolmayo refugee camp along the Ethiopia-Somalia border. The UBL podcast series includes a total of 16 episodes that address gender, healthy sexuality, conflict resolution, household task-sharing, substance use, and sexual harassment.
This is the third webinar in a three-part series.
