Projects to be highlighted are from Ethiopia, South Sudan and Zambia that implemented structured community empowerment approaches to generate demand for and improve quality of health services, including general primary healthcare, MNCH and HIV/STI services. Each presenter will discuss how they identified and addressed demand drivers and barriers for quality health care through the community mobilization and empowerment process. Intervention design considerations and quantitative assessments of the impact a community’s capacity has on behavioral and health outcomes will also be addressed.
