Gender Links (GL) this week hosted Media and SRHR Policy and networking dialogues in Tanzania and Democratic Republic of Congo. Over 70 participants took part in these face to face dialogues in the two countries.

GL as the secretariat of the Southern Africa Gender Protocol Alliance engaged members of the media cluster of the Alliance  to conduct policy dialogues in their countries on pressing and emerging SRHR issues that need prioritization and media’s attention.

These dialogues are part of key interventions for the UNESCO funded project on Strengthening women’s voice and choice through media reporting and networking which GL is implementing across the region. This regional project fits into the International Programme for the Development of Communication (IPDC) results area on Strengthening media institutions and capacities in developing countries through trainings, network building and advocacy.  The policy dialogues were  convened following a regional media SRHR training  conducted by GL in November- December 2022 which trained 19 journalists from Botswana, DRC , Lesotho , Eswatini , Malawi, Namibia, South Africa Tanzania and Zimbabwe .
