NURHI 2 Social Mobilization Tools
Social mobilization has been used over the years at different times to increase awareness of social issues and promote change at the community level. Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of social mobilization in improving health-seeking behaviors.
In family planning, social mobilization is used to generate demand for products and services through community-based activities, such as neighborhood campaigns, community dialogues and key life events. In NURHI 2, programming for young persons is intentional, with discussions around life planning and reproductive health.These activities promote family planning discussions at the community level and direct potential clients to health facilities for more information on family planning and uptake of modern family planning methods.
All mobilization activities focus on making family planning information available and bringing the services closer to the community members, even in hard-to-reach areas.
