Advocacy

IRIM helps to design and implement various advocacy, public outreach activities and dissemination works with goals as diverse as to influence policy decisions, to raise awareness or to reach and track specific target groups.

IRIM’s public outreach activities include media campaigns, public speaking, publishing research, distribution of information education communication materials among different target groups, and developing communications strategy designed for the project.

  • IRIM provides high quality needs assessment surveys, formative research, baseline and follow up surveys for designing and implementing public outreach – communications activities. This enables project implementers to design and develop products, services and communications that fit their project target population’s needs and motivations.
  • The survey findings of the programs/policies and public outreach activities help to ensure the program is based on an understanding of people’s lives, making program/policy goals realistic and achievable. Especially, survey findings enable them to target their resources cost-effectively, and select interventions that have the best impact over time.
  • IRIM arranged focus-group and key informant interviews to ground truth relevance, appropriate technical depth, and target audience reactions. IRIM evaluate the effectiveness of various communications channels and qualitative survey findings help to confirm the objectives, intended impact and key themes of the communications strategy.
