Infographics on two implementation models of workers’ health education programs in Egypt (English and Arabic)

This set of infographics describes interventions conducted in Port Said and Souhag, Egypt, aimed at increasing demand for private family planning health (FP/RH) services among young men and women (aged 18–35 years).  In Port Said, the intervention was aimed at young garment factory workers, where selected factory workers were trained to serve as peer educators and to provide FP/RH messages to their co-workers, referring them to the infirmary nurse for more information and counseling, as needed. This nurse referred those who desired more services or FP methods to trained physicians and pharmacists. In Souhag, male and female job seekers received five days of integrated FP/RH and livelihood training. Peer educators delivered the training, shared materials and social media platforms for more information, and gave participants the names of private doctors and pharmacists trained by the project.

These infographics provide an overview of the interventions in each governorate, perspectives from study participants, and lessons learned for integrating FP/RH into workers’ health education programs.
