Social Marketing Campaigns

To develop health promotion messages and campaigns that resonate with AI/AN communities, our team uses social marketing, an evidence-based planning process that improves the impact of health promotion messages. The model uses formative research to identify priority populations, segment the community into distinct audiences, pretest messages, materials and strategies with the audience, and then monitors the campaign to assess its effectiveness.

We’ve used this community-driven process to design social marketing campaigns addressing health topics important to AI/AN communities, including:

  • Drug and Alcohol Use
  • Sexual Assault
  • HIV Testing
  • Hepatitis C Testing and Treatment
  • Suicide Prevention
  • Flu and Immunizations

 

Please feel free to download, print, or pass on any of our campaign materials. Or use the campaign logos on your own shirts and promotional materials.

The Community is the Healer that Breaks the Silence campaign launched in 2010. It encourages community members to initiate conversations about suicide, to help start a dialogue and support those at risk.

Hepatitis C is everybody’s responsibility. With American Indian and Alaska Natives having the highest mortality rate from hepatitis C of any race or ethnicity, it is time to make a decision to get actively involved, raise awareness and care for ourselves and the ones we love. Whether that means getting tested for Hepatitis C, educating others about new treatment options, or learning about how you can protect yourself from getting the virus, it is important that Hepatitis C is a topic that’s talked about. Hepatitis C is not something that’s going to go away, unless we all get involved and eliminate the disease. It’s not just doctor’s, or people living with Hepatitis C, and it’s not just your, or your family’s-it is everybody’s responsibility to prevent, treat and cure Hepatitis C.
