Social mobilization is critical to successful and effective health promotion. Through a deliberate and calculated process of engaging various stakeholders, health promotion can become everyone's business. This kit provides health promotion programme managers at local and national levels with useful tools to enable leaders in other fields to become ""champions"" for health promotion. Moreover, these materials may be used by other health programme managers to establish closer working relationships with other sectors in the community. It is hoped that this kit will help foster strategic partnerships and ensure that commitments to health promotion are converted to action.
