As a multi-stakeholder campaign, the effort involves the private sector, civil society, key opinion leaders, celebrities, and media with the goal of making every Indian aware of healthy behaviours. The campaign is organised by the Improving Healthy Behaviors Program (IHBP), "a social behavior change communication project supporting the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) and funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) as part of its bilateral assistance program.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Communication Strategies:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The story of the creation of the Indian monument, the Taj Mahal, is used as a backstory for this media campaign for health behaviour change, designed to tap the population’s "immediate emotional connection around the Taj Mahal." It is a monument with historic and cultural symbolism that was built to honour a beloved wife and queen who died giving birth to her fourteenth child. This story is used by the campaign to focus a movement on health-seeking behaviour, with a particular focus on women and girls, as well as maternal and infant health, and access to quality healthcare for every Indian.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The campaign brings together stakeholders from corporate foundations, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and for-profit social ventures. It includes such strategies as encouraging organisations to: add the campaign logo to their websites; add evaluations of their work to identify how many people have been reached by their activities; and add” The Taj Must Smile” logo to any materials used as part of organisations' programmes. &nbsp;The co-brand of the materials along with the USAID branding is promoted as a benefit for building ownership and visibility.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>In addition, Indian media personalities are featured in videos with personal messages.
