This collection contains tools to improve VMMC demand creation.
Community mobilization and interpersonal communication are critical for engaging communities to create awareness and understanding about VMMC and generate demand for VMMC services. While there are other demand creation activities and approaches, such as use of mass media and social media, this guide focuses on community mobilization for VMMC services.
The following tool is intended to assess the quality of demand creation efforts in a voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) program. It helps to identify strengths, gaps, challenges, and areas in need of improvement. Effective demand creation interventions are critical for increasing uptake of VMMC services, particularly among priority age groups.
