SPEAKING BOOKS

depression speaking book

Literacy is a luxury that many of us take for granted.  We depend on written communication for information, guidance, and access to heath care information That is why SADAG created SPEAKING BOOKS and revolutionized the way information is delivered to low literacy communities. It's exactly what it sounds like.a book that talks to the reader in his or her local  language, delivering critical information in an interactive, and educational way.

The customizable 16-page book, accompanied by local celebrity audio recordings, ensures that vital health and social messages can be seen, heard, read and understood..

We started with books on Teen Suicide prevention , HIV, AIDS and Depression, Understanding Mental Health and have developed over 30 titles, such as TB, Malaria, Polio, Vaccines for over 30 countries.

The theme for 2018 is:

“JUSTICE, EQUITY AND HEALTH”

The Gauteng Mental Health Marathon Project (Life Esidimeni Tragedy) has highlighted the lack of access not only to clinical and technical resources for our patients, but also to ethical practice and care. Equity considerations include the promise of our much anticipated NHI and whether or not progressive universalism will be a reality in light of the current context.
