Let's Talk! Update

Let's Talk! South Africa Country Activation
Let's Talk! South Africa Country Activation

Thank you for helping to shift attitudes and behaviors and bring critical access to sexual reproductive health information and services to people in places most in need. You're creating a healthier, more sustainable, and just world.

I’m excited to share some results from our  Let's Talk! Conversations to Eliminate Child &Teen Pregnancy in 21 Eastern and Southern Africa (in partnership with UNESCO, Save the Children, UNFPA, and SAfAIDS). The communications campaign aims to end teen pregnancy by shifting cultural norms around sexual health education and advocating for access to contraception and family planning services. After running the campaign for 12 months prior to the pandemic and continuing a modified program, the Let’s Talk! Campaign has the following results among participants:

  • 23% more feel a responsibility to prevent child marriage
  • 32% are more knowledgable about how to access contraception
  • 40% more know how to properly use contraception
  • 15% more know how to properly use contraception

Let’s Talk! Campaign participant: “...because when we grew up no one set us down and explained...maybe...we would have not given birth early if we were informed.” Parent


Though PCI Media's active implementation in the program has ended, the “Let’s Talk!” campaign toolkit continues to be used by regional organizations in Eastern and Southern Africa to educate about and improve access to contraception and family planning.


Stay tuned to hear more about how our communications interventions reduce child and teen pregnancy in Africa. Follow us on social media to get more regular updates and information about our Valentine's Day social media Live on how art and storytelling is a catalyst for change!
