Jhpiego Community Mobilisation and GIS Technology

Jhpiego Community Mobilization and GIS Technology

Jhpiego supports voluntary medical male circumcision services (VMMC) at 17 fixed sites and more than 200 outreach sites in Tanzania. It trains health workers, implements advocacy and demand creation activities, and conducts several high-volume VMMC campaigns each year. Jhpiego has also pioneered a geographical information system (GIS) to map its VMMC activities, explore trends, and inform decisions about where to set up new outreach and campaign sites. Jhpiego employs a team of full-time peer promoters who go door-to-door and engage small groups of men in conversation about VMMC wherever they congregate. This case study is one of the promising practices in VMMC documented by BBC Media Action in 2013.
