This resource is a comprehensive guide to planning and implementing participatory video activities in conflict-affected settings, with a focus on gender-based violence prevention and response, harmful practices, HIV/AIDS, and related health issues. The Toolkit includes a manual titled “A Practical Guide to Community Video Training” that provides detailed session descriptions, exercises, and support materials for a two-week training workshop integrating thematic content with video production, team-building, and interpersonal communication skills.
The Toolkit is designed for communication personnel, program managers, and humanitarian agency and NGO staff who wish to strengthen health and social development programs through participatory video. It can also serve as a resource for health advocates, media activists, social researchers, students, and others seeking in-depth information on participatory communication and community-based social change.
