After a bit of field testing, we finalized the outreach materials for our study households in February. After looking into different media and outreach strategies used by the WHO and Hesperian Foundation, we decided to use comics as an approach to deliver easy to interpret messages to pastoral communities with varying degrees of literacy, especially among our target sub-population of women and children. The final comic leaflet was created using images captured in Tanzania and converted to comic format in Adobe PS. Friends Danielle Knueppel and Howard Kombe provided the excellent translations into Kiswahili. We’ll roll out the comics as outreach materials as the HALI project enters a new phase with NIH and hopefully CRSP funding in the fall of 2010.
