Workplace health program intervention in Port Said, Egypt
This video describes an intervention conducted by the Evidence Project in Port Said, Egypt, aimed at increasing demand for private family planning health (FP/RH) services among young men and women (aged 18–35 years) who work in garment factories. 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. This video also describes how factory health committees were created to ensure sustainability of the program in each factory. This video, which is in Arabic with English subtitles, can be used to introduce a worker health program to factory leadership.
