When you cannot dance, but you can recite: promoting the sexual health of young people with refugee backgrounds

Alison Coelho

Edutainment, the use of entertainment to educate, has traditionally benefited the learning of individuals from communities with rich oral traditions. This presentation reports on the valuable lessons learnt from the implementation of ‘Hip Hop for Health Project’, an edutainment project that was implemented in refugee communities in Victoria. The project, by the Multicultural Health and Support Service (MHSS), a program of the Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health, has been running since 2010. It was informed by the popularity of hip-hop among young people, including those with refugee backgrounds. 

 

Recorded at the 2013 Australasian HIV & AIDS and Sexual Health Conference, 21-25 October, Darwin - Australia
