I don't have specific information relevant to your request. However, from my
experience working in developing countries, health promotion programs or
messages have to be acceptable, relevant, useful and affordable to the
target population. It also requires we study and understand the
socio-economic status of our target population, the physical, social and
biological environment in which the community exists. It is easy to plan
health promotion programs but we need to think of the processes and
structures needed at national, regional and local levels to implement them.
