Health Promotion

Health issue is identified by the Health Facility, then STIPA organizes for health education sessions at the community either at the Chiefs’ barazzas, churches, schools or health facilities. On other occasions this is normally done at the health facilities during clinic days or observed National Health Days like, Toilet and hand washing Day, World AIDS Day, amongst others.

• Health Communication - Raising awareness about healthy behaviors for the general public through verbal and written strategies to influence and empower individuals, populations, and communities to make healthier choices. Examples of communication strategies include public service announcements, health fairs, mass media campaigns, and newsletters.

• Health Education - Empowering behavior change and actions through increased knowledge e.g. trainings.

• Community Outreaches – Reaching out to the community or providing services to a community who might not have access to such services, e.g. mobile clinic days.
