Group trains social mobilizers on mobilization best practices
In it quest to support the Taraba state government through the State Primary Health Care Development Agency (TAPHCDA) in increasing family planning awareness, a total number of 75 social mobilisers have been trained by The Challenge Initiative (TCI).
Apart from increasing awareness on family planning and assisting members of the various communities to access family planning service in facilities close to their areas of domiciles, the mobilizers, according to the State Program Coordinator, Dr. Othman Sariki, would as well assist in creating awareness on other integrated health services which includes routine immunizations, nutrition, malaria prevention, polio, measles and other key household practices.
The mobilizers who according to him would be incorporated into the larger Community Health Influencers, promoters’ health Services (CHIPS) network by the state, are to carry out their assigned responsibilities under the supervision of the local government health educators.
Sariki who made this known yesterday while handing over the trained mobilizers to the state government through the Executive Secretary of the aforementioned agency, Alhaji Aminu Hassan Jauro, during the quarterly review meeting of the Social and Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) Committee, said the mobilizers have been trained by TCI “on social mobilisation best practice.”
Aligning her weight to that of Sariki, the Demand Generation personnel of the TCI, Victoria Mohammed, said the Mobilizers have a monthly calendar, which entails days that they conduct neighbourhood campaigns.
