Express Outreach: East African Community Health and Information Outreach
Future Foundation Interactional proposes to enhance East African refugee and immigrant youth and community members access to and use of NLM and related health resources and information, in collaboration with existing and new partners, e.g. NN/LM, federal, local government, community coalitions, councils, faith-based and community-based organizations. Purchase of technological equipment and production of media deliverables, e.g. videos and screenings on PSA/Somali TV, will be used to assist FFI staff, foreign born East African youth, adults and providers serving these communities and other interested in learning more about East African immigrant community?s health issues and related care. FFI staff will train and work closely with youth interns to produce culturally and linguistically appreciate healthy training modules(e.g., HIV,AIDS, Diabetes, Hepatitis B) for East African communities? ( e.g., Somalis, Djiboutian, Ethiopians, Eritreans, Oromo).Furthermore, FFI will partner NN/LM staff to ensure integration of appropriate (NLM)information into training materials, related media productions. The latter will be available for viewing on Somali and Ethiopian TVs, /listening Somali radio public access channels, especially, weekly Somali weekly and Ethiopian hour.
