Facts for Life (Congo)
This set of communication material is intended for trainers and trainees and also caregivers, especially mothers.
It aims to ensure that caregivers, and particularly mothers-to-be, know and practice 12 simple, cost-effective and easy household behaviors to prevent or treat common diseases that kill most children in the Congo.
These practices include, amongst others, exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months, sleeping under an insecticide-treated mosquito net, handwashing wth soap and use of oral rehydration salt for diarrhea.
The publications are the result of a partnership between UNICEF, the Ministry of Health, religious groups and the private sector. All the material was developed using a participative approach and are based on the experiential learning model.
