As a company dedicated to the health and wellbeing of underserved people globally, we are deeply concerned about the effects of COVID-19 on the communities we serve. While COVID-19 spreads rapidly, we continue providing our partners with critical services as well as responding to the growing crisis. We are supporting partners in pivoting to enable programme continuity, while also developing new ways of supporting preparedness and response efforts across the globe.

Scope is actively contributing to the Inter-agency Working Group of Reproductive Health in Crises. We are researching and advocating for improved COVID-19 services for vulnerable populations, as well as designing rapid, remote means to co-create emergency responses, facility improvements, and community mobilisation efforts.

Social media, mobile and adolescent health

How can social media and mobile services support education and awareness of Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health and HIV?

Scope carried out a 2012 research for UNESCO reviewing the utilisation of new communication technologies, like mobile phones and social media, in raising awareness of sexual and reproductive health and HIV amongst young people.

The possibilities of engaging especially young audiences through these new technologies are immense and with ever-evolving services and user uptake they are becoming essential tools for advancing HIV education programmes at a national, regional and global level. Hence, understanding the role new technologies play in health education and in young people’s lives is essential for effective HIV education.

The purpose of this study was to foster that understanding at a global and national level, especially in target countries Jamaica, China and Zimbabwe, and contribute an analysis of the opportunities and recommendations for action for UNESCO.
