Yamaan Foundation for Health and Social Development focuses on Family Planning, Training, Campaigns and BCC, Research
Yamaan runs a variety of training activities for medical professionals, religious leaders, community leaders, school counselors, media representatives and youth on reproductive health, family planning and HIV/AIDS. The trainings range from developing skills for medical professionals (midwives, doctors..) to teaching media representatives about the importance of reporting accurately and objectively on reproductive health issues to teaching religious leaders that family planning is permitted in Islam and beneficial to families and communities.
For the training activities of the medical professionals, Yamaan adopts the competency-based approach and uses the national guidelines and manuals, in addition to benefiting from the international standard manuals through its partnership with Marie Stopes International (MSI). For instance, Yamaan currently uses the family planning training package developed by MSI and translated into Arabic through the RAISE initiative.
