Community Mobilization

Community MobilizationIn all the communities  we work, HPI identifies the most appropriate community health advocates(CHAs) who are leaders chosen by the people during baseline mapping. 

We are mindful of making the right contacts with the district and community leadership to ensure successful participation.On the ground,community health advocates are important allies in convincing and bringing people to participate  in any health change effort. HPI trains them and builds their capacities relevant to the specific project.

We have learnt that people are more willing  to listen and learn from the example of one of their own.It  also leads to lasting impact owned by the people. For example we work with a team of People Living With HIV/AIDS like Gertrude who through community dialogues and health talks shares her 15 year journey of living positively.Gertrude urges her audiences not to be afraid of testing,assuring them that help is available to either live positively like she has done or avoid getting infected in the first place.Gertrude is a good example of a pillar in the community who we support as a resource for those who are afraid of testing or those that have tested positive and are afraid to seek care.

Other forms of mobilizing people include sports events, outdoor  film shows, radio campaigns and experiential methods  where mobile  announcers  go around  the  village  promoting a community education  event  prepared  by  HPI to  alert  them  to new campaigns and the details on opportunities to learn, and access needed health products and services.
