This September 8, 2016 webinar brought together six panelists – all recipients of a small project grant – to discuss their experiences in adapting and using the Demand Generation I-Kit for their local context and their efforts toward developing and implementing demand generation strategies in their respective countries.
This is the final installment in a three-part series held in support of the United Nations Commission on Life-Saving Commodities for Women and Children (UNCoLSC). The first webinar in this series focused on integrating gender especially working with men and boys for RMNCAH programs, while the second focused on highlighting pioneering programs that have expertly used Information and Communication Technology (ICT) approaches to generate demand for RMNCAH products and services.
