Project details:

Okurufi Consult has developed, produced and implemented several social and behavior change communication campaign projects including Plan Ghana’s Women and their Children’s Health Project (WATCH), which sought to support improved maternal, neonatal and child health for underserved populations in Ghana. Specifically, the company formulated the communications campaign strategy, developed and produced IEC/SBCC materials for creating awareness in different Ghanaian languages and implemented the campaign activities across the country to help change attitudes and behaviors and improve the situation. Specifically we developed and produced IEC materials including posters, flayers, radio and tv docu-dramas in six local languages, pull up stands and tv and radio adverts. These materials were used for awareness creation in six regions in the country.
Under the Plan Ghana SHOW project, Okurufi designed and printed the community based maternal and neonatal care tool kits and manual for community health workers. The following documents were designed printed and submitted to GHS:
