Transformative Tools

SSDI-Communication created and distributed three Transformative Tools – print materials that include integrated health information on six health topics – to communities: The Family Health Booklet, the Community Health Worker Flipchart, the DREAMS Toolkit, and the Newlyweds Booklet. These tools served as the foundation for the direct delivery of SBCC to families, individuals and communities in SSDI focus districts. Additionally, SSDI-Communication adapted a comic book originally created by Novartis to both promote malaria prevention and treatment behaviors as well as English literacy among Malawian school children. Finally, SSDI-Communication contributed 2 new modules to the African Transformation toolkit, a "gender transformative" tool, focusing on malaria and safe motherhood.
