The role of the media in promoting better health care is not limited to public relations. It is equally important for the public to be involved in debates about the design and implementation of strong health systems. As sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) is a concept that incorporates the full range of individual needs, and takes into account services that are still too often neglected, it is very important to know what role the Burundian media plays in advancing such a concept, or what is missing and what should be done to promote SRHR in Burundi through the media.
It is with this vision in mind that considerable efforts have already been made by the Share-Net Burundi knowledge platform, including the establishment of a national media community of practice consisting of 15 media outlets working on SRHR. This document is prepared to outline what is available in Burundi and how to shape the role of those engaged in promoting best practice, sharing experiences and influencing policy to improve human rights and sexual and reproductive health and rights in particular in Burundi.
