1. NEW! HIGHLIGHT: Janani in India
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Janani is an affiliate of DKT-International, headquartered in Washington DC and one of the largest social marketing organizations in the world. In India, Janani is a non-profit Society which implements a large and cost-efficient service delivery program in three of the poorest states - Bihar, Jharkhand and Madhya Pradesh. In its nine years of work, Janani has prevented more than 6.10 million unwanted pregnancies.

It is generally believed that using social marketing techniques to deliver services and products in rural areas is very expensive and therefore unviable. The Janani program has demonstrated that this need not be so-innovative strategies that bundle services on the basis of financial returns and elasticity of profit can be effective as well as cost efficient.

The program is modeled on the premise that the only option available to supplement the public sector in scale and impact of service delivery is the private sector. There are vast sections of the population in India, mostly poor and rural, who do not have access to good quality health and reproductive health products and services. About 16% of couples in reproductive union-25 million in total-want to either space or limit children but do not use a modern method of contraception, mainly due to lack of access. In poor states like Bihar, the unmet need is about 40%.

India has a vast public sector but during the five decades since the country's independence, the public sector has not been able to address the needs of the poor fully. There are an estimated 450,000 private doctors, 1.25 rural providers and 12 million shops in India and leveraging such resources provides a huge opportunity to supplement the public sector in scale and urgency. Janani's program does just that. Reconciling the ability of the poorer clients to pay for services with the need for creating worthwhile profits for the providers is the challenge that Janani faces. The program design does this either by subsidizing products or generating large caseloads so that prices can be lowered.

Often, it is a combination of both. Qualified doctors, trained by Janani and franchised under the sun (Surya) logo constitute the most important network of the Janani program. The other two networks of rural providers and shops are designed around the Surya Clinics to improve the effectiveness of the program and to deliver services to the poorer and rural communities.

3. DISCUSSION: Economic Empowerment can Help End Gender Inequality
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Women who are educated and earn money have a better status in society. More and more micro finance institutions are bringing empowerment to women around the world through economic independence. Please share your experiences with the community on real life case studies from your part of the world and about women's groups which are helping themselves and the community.

4. RESOURCE OF INTEREST: Revisiting Gender Training - The Making and Remaking of Gender Knowledge
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Revisiting gender training: the making and remaking of gender knowledge is concerned with the thinking behind gender education and training rather than with day-to-day practice. It explores the explicit and implicit assumptions in gender training about the nature of knowledge (epistemology), about how knowledge is imparted (pedagogy) and about knowing (cognition). The tenth volume in the successful Gender, Society & Development Series, Revisiting gender training brings together case studies at country, regional and global level to look critically behind the practice. An extensive and up-to-date annotated bibliography of international resources (print and online) makes this a truly global sourcebook on the topic. Content contributors are gender specialists from different geographical regions: India, Uganda, the Machreq/Maghreb region, South Africa, and the French-speaking world.
Jashodhara Dasgupta examines whether the primarily 'political' nature of the feminist project has been unobtrusively dismantled by the language and tools of development in India, including the use of gender training. Josephine Ahikire analyses gender training in Uganda, post-Beijing Conference, and the ways in which it has changed over time. She focuses on the point where international imperatives meet the national context, and considers the impact of gender training on the feminist intellectual and political project. Lina Abou-Habib considers gender training in the Machreq/Maghreb region in the Middle East and North Africa. She highlights the transformatory potential of such training, and the ways in which it has dealt with patriarchal mindsets and institutions. Claudy Vouhé discusses the conditions and factors that limit or strengthen the impact of gender training. This contribution is the output from an international conference on gender training in the French-speaking world in 2006. Shamim Meer explores the power of rights-based development approaches for advancing ideas and action for social change, including change to unequal gender power relations. Starting with experience in South Africa, she teases out the particular understandings of rights and agency, and reflects on a methodology for linking reflection and action through starting from the personal. Maitrayee Mukhopadhyay and Franz Wong introduce the book and establish its focus on gender training and feminist epistemology, its tone of critical reflection, and its aim of looking beneath the surface of much of the day to day 'gender' activity and considering the assumptions made about of the links that exist between knowledge, attitudes, behaviours, and practice.

5. FROM dgCOMMUNITIES: A New dgCommunity Focuses on Arab Reform

The new portal will serve as a platform for aggregating information about reform activities in the Arab world.
