Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown University: Transforming gender norms & reproductive health outcomes with the GREAT Toolkit

1 JULY 2013 — Supporting adolescents in northern Uganda to improve reproductive health, reduce gender-based violence, and achieve equal opportunities between boys and girls is a big goal. Working toward this objective, the Gender Roles, Equality and Transformations (GREAT) Project — led by Georgetown University’s Institute for Reproductive Health in collaboration with partners Pathfinder International and Save the Children — has developed a fun and engaging toolkit of interactive games and materials that draw young people and adults alike. The toolkit’s activities target adolescents throughout different life stages and help promote dialogue, reflection and action among adolescents, their parents, and community.
