This 10-day course focuses on strategic communication planning for behavioural impact in health and social development, based on the COMBI (Communication for Behavioural Impact) used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF in areas ranging from communicable and non-communicable diseases to HIV/AIDS, early childhood development, and perinatal care.
COMBI applies the disciplines of marketing (including village-level marketing traditions), public relations and public advocacy, administrative mobilisation, advertising, counselling, personal selling, community mobilisation, health education, mass communication, folk media, and market research to achieve behavioural outcomes in health and social development.
Participants will learn how to apply the 10-step planning process of COMBI in the strategic planning of communication programmes for behavioral results.
The course will cover:
Communication and Behavioural Goals
Basic Communication Techniques (Mass Media, Small Group and Personal Selling/Interpersonal Communication/Counselling);
Marketing Principles and Practices for IMC;
Marketing Research and Programme Evaluation;
Community Mobilisation, Advertising and Public Relations;
Integrated Marketing Communication Practicum.
Each participant will work (as part of a group) on the design of a COMBI plan for a specific behavioral result in a health or other social development field of his or her choice.
Who should attend:
This workshop will be of special relevance to those working on both communicable and non-communicable diseases and social development problems such as dengue and other vector borne diseases, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, adolescent reproductive health, maternal child health, malaria, immunization, early childhood development, and juvenile justice, for example. The course is intended for health and social development professionals who have the responsibility for designing, supervising or managing health education, health promotion, and other information-education-communication (IEC) programmes to achieve specific behavioural results in health and social development. Prior communication experience is not required for this training.
