If a Deaf woman in your country wants to know how to protect her health, how does she find this information?

 

Many mainstream health education programs exclude Deaf women. For example, they may not understand that some Deaf women need to receive information through sign language. Meanwhiles, families might not teach Deaf daughters about their health either. Many hearing families do not learn sign language, so they don’t know how to communicate with their Deaf loved ones.

 

Programs in Chile, Argentina, and Zimbabwe are teaching Deaf women how to care for their own health. A series of videos use Chilean Sign Language to teach Deaf women about HIV/AIDS. Another series of videos use Argentinean Sign Language to teach Deaf women about their health, being a mother, and raising children. Meanwhile, an organization in Zimbabwe has produced Facebook videos to teach Deaf girls about menstrual hygiene and about sexual and reproductive health rights. Learn more about these videos at the following posts.
