BEHAVIOR

Central to disease control is community understanding and engagement through communication, education, and environmental modification. To design impactful interventions, we conduct standardized surveys to measure knowledge, attitudes, and practices. Health education campaigns delivered in the local Pokot language and Kiswahili are integrated in mobile screenings and as stand-alone interventions in disparate settings such as markets, schools and health facilities often leveraging on-going community activities. Communication strategies include printed material and song and dance. Continuous engagement enables us to assess how our work has increased awareness and willingness to seek care among the population and to understand the perception of disease in the community. We have seen remarkable improvement in knowledge, better health seeking behavior and overall community engagement.
