Delving into the dynamics of information campaigns and social norms - a study done by @Tenna Axelsen, @Aarhus University.

Interesting findings from a collaborative project with @The Maa Trust and @MMSDI sheds light on family planning awareness amongst the Maasai communities in Maasai Mara, Kenya. While TMT’s efforts successfully boosted awareness, there is a crucial gap impacting uptake. (1) Men often hold decision-making power in the Maasai communities and (2) they harbor negative perceptions towards family planning, both hindering women and youth’s autonomy to choose family planning.

Let’s continue amplifying understanding and pave the way for empowered choices to improve sexual and reproductive health!
