Families and communities are composed of homes. These homes in turn, are safe empowering spaces in which individuals have access to; education; work; health services and well-being; and property accordingly.
Such homes must be spaces where fears are addressed with finding solutions in mind. Such homes must not be torture chambers. Such homes may have people who may or may not have children. The individuals in these homes who are bread-winners need to be able to work or engage in productive work; earn a living; afford a life; seek education for themselves and children; and own property. In such homes, there must be possibilities and opportunities for both females and males. Such homes must ensure health and well-being of individuals. The immediate output will be a supportive environment for both woman and man.
The key feature of a supportive paradigm is analysis:
1. How do those who identify as females in a family relate their life to education; work; health services and well-being; and property accordingly.
2. How do those who identify as males in a family relate their life to education; work; health services and well-being; and property accordingly.
3. How do those who identify as females under 20 in a family relate their life to education; work; health services and well-being; and property accordingly.
4. How do those who identify as males under 20 in a family relate their life to education; work; health services and well-being; and property accordingly.
5. Who else can influence these families to relate to education; work; health services and well-being; and property accordingly.
6. How can synthesized reports be shared with all stakeholders to improve how families relate to education; work; health services and well-being; and property accordingly.
The ability to participate and enjoy mobility by women and men in family and community is an issue of importance to women. Family and community can only gain stature if the homes that compose it are viable. The homes in turn can be safe empowering spaces when the individuals are involved cooperatively in enjoying and ensuring good standards of living. Such homes allow working people to engage in productive work; earn a living; afford a life; and own property. In such homes, there must be possibilities to afford education, health, nutrition and access to property. In such homes, health and well-being of individuals is assured. When the above analysis exercises are done one would be able to discern universal needs and how they apply to both women and men. one is able to discern the daily struggles and abuses. One is able to note consequences arising from lack of services or their availability and use. It is possible to generate stories on interventions against abuses.
If we want to work towards better women's health and well-being, there is need to embrace the supportive paradigm that calls for accountability, commitment and holds all of us responsible. Supportive Paradigm enables one to generate data, develop a stakeholder matrix and work within a network. Steps to achieve accountable care. It calls for creating empowering spaces in which individuals have access to; education; work; health services and well-being; and property accordingly.
