Keneya Jemu Kan

© 2016 Center for Communication Programs, Courtesy of HC3 Project

The Keneya Jemu Kan project conducts social and behavior change communication (SBCC) and social marketing (SM) activities in Mali to:

  • reduce maternal, infant and child mortality;
  • increase contraceptive prevalence; and,
  • reduce prevalence of underweight women and children and of stunting and wasting in children.

The social marketing component helps to increase access and use of health commodities. The project strengthens local NGOs capacity and the Ministry of Health’s communication entity (CNIECS) to design, implement and evaluate effective evidence-based SBCC intervention and social marketing.

This SBCC and social marketing approach embraces partnership at all levels – from the couple who decides to adopt healthier behaviors to community health actors such as NGOs and women’s groups that join with nurses, doctors and communities to meet the health needs of Malian families.

Demand generation through a comprehensive, integrated multi-channel approach delivers messages that increase knowledge, awareness, positively impacted attitudes and lead to the adoption of healthier behaviors as well as increased access and use of services and health products.

Keneya Jemu Kan is a five-year USAID-funded project led by CCP and implemented in collaboration with Palladium and Management Sciences for Health (MSH).
