[Unpublished] . 9 p.This paper provides guidance on key questions or indicators for assessing the value and efficiency of health communication programming. The material covered in this document comes from experiences of the Mass Communication and Mobilization Technical Support Group, which involved several UN International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) country offices and partner agencies. Over a 2-year period, UNICEF offices and partner agencies worked together to provide support for the development of programming that sought to harness the power of mass communications for gains in health status. In the course of the process, they also distilled some important elements for overall health communication programming such as partnerships, key activities, situation analysis and evaluation questions and case studies. The material that resulted is reflected in the report.
New York, New York, UNICEF, 1997 Jan. , xviii, 73 p. (UNICEF Staff Working Papers DOC-97-001)This paper reviews the communication initiative of UN International Children's Emergency Fund, Facts for Life (FFL) undertaken in 31 countries during 1996. There have been over 15 million copies of the FFL book that have been published in the last 5 years. FFL messages have been used in radio, television dramas, cartoons, comics, storybooks, and literacy primers that benefit children. Although FFL is still considered to be in its initial phase, it has the potential to improve the health and well being of women and children. Also, it has the potential to revolutionize global approaches to health education, upgrade the planning and communication capacity of developing country government and nongovernment agencies, promote high quality intersectoral planning and collaboration. This booklet comprises five chapters, with chapter 1 presenting a historical overview of FFL. Chapter 2 examines the important linkages between levels of interest, sustainability, and the integration of FFL into programs for children. Chapter 3 reviews the potential future use of FFL, the level of field support for future FFL publications and activities, and suggestions for new global FFL initiatives. Conclusions, specific recommendations, and action points are presented in chapters 4 and 5.
