Work progress of sr swg in 2011


Few members of the group had previously been involved in the group: 3 out of 13. However Ascertained that :

  • A chapter on SRS in different countries developed for publication in ISOFS journal; and called for input from members but only TERREWODE-Uganda and Fistula Foundation Nigeria responded

  • TERREWODE shared progress on mapping reintegration services in Uganda and DRC

  • WD started situational analysis on reintegration services, continuing with a mini-study with fistula survivors

  • Questionnaire ?

  • Process of developing social reintegration tools had started

  • Action Plan with a summary of recommendations

  • Attempts to make a conference call but not very successful

Challenges identified in the social reintegration work


  • Challenges of communication within the SWG-difficulties of scheduling calls

  • Members too busy doing other work

  • No clear terms of reference

  • Lots to share but no effective mechanism for sharing it

How the swg could contribute to addressing the challenges

How the SWG could contribute to addressing the challenges:

  • Put in place clear objectives/TOR

  • A clear work plan with bench marks

  • Share information (upload) on the end fistula website

  • Identify what each members expected out of the SWG

What best practices were identified by the swg

  • Awareness raising on about the importance of Social Reintegration Services(SRS)

  • Empowerment of the affected women to lead the campaign to improve SRS for survivors

Advocacy swg

Advocacy swg

Should be separate, but with membership from other SWG Can not fully develop terms for a different group:

  • Advocacy is over-arching and cuts across all working groups should be done in a holistic way (may need representation from each group)

  • Define and agree on What advocacy meant for the group

  • Needs TOR

  • Identify elements and modes of advocacy

  • Identify target groups

  • Use existing opportunities for activism eg 16 days of violence against women
