Abstract: This video is the result of a four-day workshop in Bangladesh that involved a diverse group of young people. It features spontaneous statements by adolescents and stylized, on-stage dramas by adolescent drama groups, male and female, interacting with adult actors in a few scenes. The backgrounds for all dramas are dark with no props. Quick clips of comic animation are used to reinforce certain key points. There are also a number of brief testimonials by adolescents - "success stories" on empowerment themes, as well as comments from adults on some of the issues addressed. The video is held together by the same popular theme song sung by a male and female adolescent at the opening, middle and end with different words to match the themes of the videos. The male adolescent is dressed in western garb, while the girl is dressed in traditional garb. The video begins with a voice over from a young girl talking about the workshop, while images are shown of adolescents working together in small groups, talking, drawing, writing and giving presentations. The program is divided into two parts. The first part deals with the physical changes brought on by puberty, and the second part deals with emotional changes. less

Pretesting: Adolescents are involved in all stages of program developments: Formative research, character development and story writing for scripts and comic books, retesting, acting, and evaluation.

Summative Evaluation: The program implemented a pilot study of the ARH materials in three rural areas of Bangladesh. This pilot study included baseline and follow-up cross-sectional surveys of adolescents and their parents in the implementation and selected comparison areas. Overall, 1702 adolescents and 1203 parents were interviewed in the spring of 2004 and 1827 adolescents and 1276 parents were interviewed in the summer... more

This pilot study included baseline and follow-up cross-sectional surveys of adolescents and their parents in the implementation and selected comparison areas. Overall, 1702 adolescents and 1203 parents were interviewed in the spring of 2004 and 1827 adolescents and 1276 parents were interviewed in the summer of 2005. The main findings from this study include: Nearly 60 percent of all adolescents in the implementation areas reported participating in the ARH group sessions; Participants in the implementation sites had greater knowledge of puberty and adolescence, pregnancy, maternal health and HIV/AIDS than either non-participants or adolescents living in the comparison sites; Participants were more likely to have discussed RH issues with a parent or elder family member than either non-participants or adolescents living in the comparison sites; The program did not have a noticeable effect on adolescents' perceptions of self-esteem or problem-solving ability; Compared to parents in the comparison areas, parents in the implementation areas indicated a greater level of participation in household decision-making by adolescents. less
