A situational analysis of peer education clubs for reproductive health in secondary schools in Western Kenya
The goal of my practicum was to perform an in-depth situational analysis, which GABS will use to apply for grant funding. This session discusses the methods used to perform the situational analysis, including focus group discussions, key informant interviews, and classroom surveys, as well as the experience of designing and implementation of a sample peer education lesson. It also shares lessons learned and challenges from the field as an MPH student and emphasizes the importance of an international practicum in developing practical skills, understanding cultural differences and choosing a future career path
Learning Areas:Assessment of individual and community needs for health education
Evaluate how the practicum experience compliments the skills acquired during the MPH studies. Identify the cross-cultural and workplace challenges in a public health setting within a developing country. Discuss the reproductive health education needs of students in rural schools in Kenya.
