VASECTOMY WITHOUT BORDERS
The journey launches on October 1st and over the following four weeks will continue on to 9 cities from the south to the north of Colombia. In each location a series of activities have been planning in conjunction with our partners at Profamilia and local authorities. A team of media artists and FP specialists travel in two vehicles educating and inspiring men and women along the way.
This initiative has two primary objectives:
- Promote men’s engagement in sexual and reproductive health through an intense World Vasectomy Day marketing campaign.
- Create a sense of shared purpose and unity across Colombia.
After years of violent conflict, Colombia remains a nation, psychologically at war with itself and one still rooted in antiquated notions of machismo. The Vasectomy Without Borders road trip is a chance to heal old wounds and inspire cross gender dialogue as we find common ground and common purpose. Forging alliances with public and private institutions, media, artists and leaders, WVD sets out to tell stories of shared hope and resilience and of kindness and compassion.
The cities we are visiting include:
