Assignment 2: Social Marketing Campaigns
Social marketing uses traditional marketing concepts to change health behavior, with the ultimate outcome of a healthier population. Social marketing campaigns have been used to raise awareness of risk and risk behaviors, to promote the adoption of healthy behaviors, and to encourage cessation of unhealthy behaviors. In this assignment, you will be analyzing social marketing campaigns.
For this assignment, select two social marketing campaigns that have been conducted on the same health issue. (Unprotected intercourse among teens).
