U-ART Overview


The Department of Sociology in conjunction with the University of Cape Town based African Gender Institute (AGI) started the action research project on young women’s sexual and reproductive health (SRH). The UNAM Action Research Team (U-ART) was formed as a vehicle through which action research activities could be undertaken on the issues of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRRH) as well Gender-based Violence (GBV). Since its inception in 2010 U-ART completed various research, awareness-raising and skills building activities. As part of the ongoing data collection and awareness raising process U-ART members held meetings, workshops, used drama, conducted interviews, gave talks, hosted a panel discussions and held and participated in demonstration on sexual and reproductive concerns facing young women.
