About GAVI-Unilever Project

Despite major strides made by the Government of UP, the overall health status of the state is poor. Low immunization status and high incidence of child deaths caused by easily preventable diseases like Diarrhoea and Pneumonia remains a major concern, with infant mortality rates much higher than the all-India level. Poor knowledge related to immunization and hand hygiene amplified with socio-cultural barriers to adoption of practices continue to contribute to low levels of service utilization and poor child health in the state.

This project aims to execute an ambitious demand creation strategy in UP that will stimulate the uptake of priority health behaviours by combining tried and tested behaviour change tools and innovative new solutions. Informed by behaviour change theory, practical field experiences and the latest available data, Dialogue Factory has designed a comprehensive multi-channel communications strategy incorporating research, creatives, mobile and aspects of community mobilization and interpersonal communication. These channels will be used in a synergistic way to ensure the widest possible reach and impact, while leveraging existing public and private sector infrastructure, systems and personnel in order to maximize cost effectiveness, scale and sustainability. The communications intervention will operate at multiple levels to not only engage families and communities but also networks of service providers, community leaders and other influencers and health system officials. The entire project is designed to build continuously the capacity of the government so that key lessons, products and methodologies can be transitioned to the government for scale-up and sustainability.

This behavior change communication (BCC) program has already been piloted (Phase-I) in 2 districts of UP, followed by a scale-up (Phase-II) in 12 districts. Phase III builds on Phases I and II; it provides an opportunity to strengthen the design of the intervention and make it more easily replicable, scalable, and sustainable. Phase I and II were built on interpersonal communication (IPC) or face-to-face engagements with parents using a trained “facilitator-duo” (FD) and also used digital/mobile and community led components to remind parents and reinforce the message of HWWS and immunization. The challenge for Phase III is to provide alternatives or options that can be presented to various stakeholders and sources to ensure scalability and sustainability of this unique child health platform beyond 2021.

About India

2020 brought opportunities for brands to innovate because of which we saw an evolving media stack. The growth of digital is set to soar high because of changing consumer habits. With approximately 500 million smartphone users, low-priced data plans, 45 to 50 million e-commerce shoppers, approximately 60 OTT offerings and a young population, India is a mobile-first internet market. It is also one of the top 10 ad spend markets in the world and is set to climb the ranks. Global big tech corporations have made considerable investments in top e-commerce/retail ventures and Indian start-ups, blurring the lines between social media, e-commerce and mobile payments, resulting in disruption on an unimaginable scale.
