Youth Against Sexual Violence (YAS)

Worldwide, 1 in 3 women (approximately 38%) has experienced Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in their lifetime. Based on the data, the prevalence of GBV fluctuates, and systematic review studies in Iran showed that the total rate of violence against women is about 22.9%, with the highest rate in Tehran and Zahedan. Pregnancy, low education, age, psychological disorders, and addiction are the most effective factors in sexual, physical, and emotional violence within Iran. Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) is a human rights challenge worldwide. Various studies show that Iranians do not have enough information about SGBV. According to the United Nations, the term Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) refers to any harmful act committed against someone's will and based on gender differences between men and women. These acts include physical, mental, or sexual harm or threats of such acts, coercion, and deprivation of liberty, whether in public or private life. However, the definition of SGBV in Iran focuses more on domestic violence against women. SGBV has many effects on individuals, families, and communities. It also has significant costs for countries and economic development. The results of several studies conducted in medical and forensic centers show domestic violence against pregnant women who have been referred to hospitals. According to these studies, physicians and health care providers are in a good position to reduce the effect of SGBV on victims. However, doctors aren't fully prepared for this situation, while they have the highest impact on reducing women's health violations. Physicians who have previously been trained in GBV management have the best chance of screening and diagnosing patients with GBV. In addition, trained students can influence other health workers to screen for abuse and violation. Therefore, these groups should learn the skills needed to diagnose GBV. They must also have sufficient knowledge and skills to care for, support, and refer victims of rape. There is a basic need for physicians to be trained in screening, identifying, treating, and preventing partner violence. A study by Humber and Flann found that victims of violence exist in all medical specialties. They also concluded that significant patients associated with domestic violence across health care centers, especially clinics. The main reason that doctors rarely ask patients about spousal violence is that they often do not feel ready to help the patient who has experienced the violence. Although all health workers need to have sufficient skills to deal with SGBV, a review of the Iranian Medical Education and Other Health Services curriculum shows that they are not formally trained in SGBV while studying at their universities. Building the capacity of health workers for SGBV can lead to effective response and action if these occur. The goal of this project was to engage and empower medical students, physicians, and other health care professionals about SGBV through an interactive learning model.

SEX EDUCATION ANIMATION VIDEOS: NEPALI

Every young person has to make life-changing decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. However many of them cannot access clear, evidence-based information. We understand that talking about sex, abortion and related topics can be tricky for educators and parents. The more the world gets connected, the more are the chances of young people getting information from unreliable sources. To make it easy for young people, parents and educators to continue sharing the right sex education we partnered with AMAZE.org to create interesting, informative videos in Hindi language.  We cover five topics through five animation videos: 1. Staying connected safely: cyber safety (Nepali) The internet can be an amazing place to explore, but it is also good to practice online safety. Some tips include being careful about sharing personal information, reporting anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable online, and getting familiar with privacy settings. 2. Understanding abortion: what are your options? (Nepali) Abortion is an important sexual and reproductive rights issue. It is an individual choice, and in many countries like India and Nepal it is legal to end a pregnancy. 3. Sexting: what should you do? (Nepali) Sexting is making sexual images and sharing them using a phone or by posting them online. Use this video to explain the risks of texting to young people and educating them about respectful relationships. 4.Say no to STI stigma (Nepali) A sexually-transmitted infection (STI) is an infection that is spread through sexual contact. It is preventable. There are many stereotypes about what it takes to get a STI - this video is to sensitize young people about sexually transmitted infections and bust myths about it. 5. Access to sexual health for minors (Nepali) Sexual health includes many aspects like contraception, information about abortion, STI and HIV detection and treatment. This video explains and encourages young people to understand more about their body, its health and find ways to access sexual health services. ABOUT AMAZE.ORG AMAZE envisions a world that recognizes child and adolescent sexual development as natural and healthy, a world in which young people everywhere are supported and affirmed and the adults in their lives communicate openly and honestly with them about puberty, reproduction, relationships, sex and sexuality. In such a world, young people across the globe would have access to the information and support they need to develop into sexually healthy adults. https://amaze.org/what-is-amaze/

Based on the data, the prevalence of GBV fluctuates, and systematic review studies in Iran showed that the total rate of violence against women is about 22.9%, with the highest rate in Tehran and Zahedan.

To make it easy for young people, parents and educators to continue sharing the right sex education we partnered with AMAZE.org to create interesting, informative videos in Hindi language.  We cover five topics through five animation videos: 1. Staying connected safely: cyber safety (Nepali) The internet can be an amazing place to explore, but it is also good to practice online safety. Some tips include being careful about sharing personal information, reporting anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable online, and getting familiar with privacy settings. 2. Understanding abortion: what are your options? (Nepali) Abortion is an important sexual and reproductive rights issue. It is an individual choice, and in many countries like India and Nepal it is legal to end a pregnancy. 3. Sexting: what should you do? (Nepali) Sexting is making sexual images and sharing them using a phone or by posting them online. Use this video to explain the risks of texting to young people and educating them about respectful relationships. 4.Say no to STI stigma (Nepali) A sexually-transmitted infection (STI) is an infection that is spread through sexual contact. It is preventable. There are many stereotypes about what it takes to get a STI - this video is to sensitize young people about sexually transmitted infections and bust myths about it. 5. Access to sexual health for minors (Nepali) Sexual health includes many aspects like contraception, information about abortion, STI and HIV detection and treatment. This video explains and encourages young people to understand more about their body, its health and find ways to access sexual health services. ABOUT AMAZE.ORG AMAZE envisions a world that recognizes child and adolescent sexual development as natural and healthy, a world in which young people everywhere are supported and affirmed and the adults in their lives communicate openly and honestly with them about puberty, reproduction, relationships, sex and sexuality. In such a world, young people across the globe would have access to the information and support they need to develop into sexually healthy adults. https://amaze.org/what-is-amaze/
