The first campaign was launched in 2010.The campaign is aimed at increasing knowledge around the benefits of MMC among sexually active men and women, encourage MMC uptake and link people to MMC services. Several campaigns have been conducted since then, drawing on quantitative and qualitative research to hone messages as knowledge of MMC benefits has increased.
