Our strategy

In 2017-2019 Tanadgoma is implementing two programs:

 

  1. Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Program

 

Working on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights is a traditional direction for the organization. In the process of strategic planning it was defined that this direction represents high priority. Although, comparing with the strategic plan of 2014-2016, in the coming three years the organization deems necessary to make the program richer through focusing more on some particular components. These components are related to sexuality education, promotion of Family Planning, advocacy to better prioritizing of SRHR by the state, using media for better visibility of SRHR, etc. Also, it is intended to  focus more of advocacy, expertise and technical support provision rather than on services. Wide experience of the organization in research will give the ground for evidence-based programming and advocacy.

Basic directions under this program are as follows:

  • Advocacy of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights both in Georgia and on the international level
  • Cooperate with state and non-state stakeholders to contribute to incorporation of Comprehensive Sexuality Education into the education system of Georgia
  • Prevention of STIs, HIV, TB, viral hepatitis and oncological diseases of Reproductive System among vulnerable populations
  • Promoting Family Planning
  • Contribute to elimination of gender-based violence and discrimination among vulnerable women in Georgia
  • Providing technical assistance on SRHR issues to community and civil society organizations
  • Conducting qualitative and quantitative research on SRHR issues

 

  1. Mental Health Program

 

Developing of the mental health direction and specifically of psychosocial rehabilitation and re-socialization of the vulnerable groups has been paid more attention during the last 2-3 years. Psychosocial rehabilitation component has emerged under the health projects implemented by the organization, experience has been gained, a rehabilitation center as well as a Social Enterprise established, consequently, Tanadgoma sees perspective of developing this program. Here it is also important to keep the balance between service provision and advocacy. One of the focuses should be on further institutionalization of the existing services by other, state or private medical structures. At the same time, Tanadgoma will contribute to this process through providing evidence base and technical support.

Basic directions under this program are as follows:

  • Ensuring provision of sustainable and regular psychosocial services for the vulnerable populations
  • Contributing to institutionalization of sustainable and regular psychosocial services for the vulnerable populations
  • Contribute to drug policy change and reducing stigmatization of drug users in Georgia
  • Providing technical assistance on psychosocial rehabilitation and re-socialization issues to community and civil society organizations
