EnFaith is a community-based project developing evidence-based interventions aimed at promoting positive attitudes toward reproductive health within churches in Georgia. The project team seeks to understand church members’ attitudes and beliefs surrounding sexual and reproductive health. The project team and community partners seek to create strategies to develop positive attributes such as, emotional care, compassion, empathy, and social cohesion for individuals within communities faced with sexual and reproductive health challenges.


  • Interviews with church community members about reproductive health norms, attitudes, and beliefs.
  • Creation of intervention strategies by adapting evidence-based interventions to the Southeast context.
  • Engagement with communities to implement and evaluate the strategy.
