Storytelling @USAIDGH with
Global Health Month+ More
Place grassroots voices at the center of the
narrative and the procedures and processes to
determine and then articulate new goals.
We must engage in a
conversation with the people
we serve, and empower
citizens to use their voice on
finding success and economic
opportunity; and do so in a
way that uncovers stories of
hardship, hard work and hardearned gains
Get off the sideline and
stimulate discourse; identify
and engage communityfocused organizations,
potential innovators, bloggers
Change the narrative
Our narrative must
evolve as well to value
people and human
rights; we must
demonstrate collective
solidarity, and a
commitment to the
people we try to serve.
Peril of the single story;
robs people of dignity
Unleash social change
‘Aid' is only of value when it supports the
struggles of the many to unleash social change,
making communities more adaptive and
resilient in the process.
Communications can influence policy, amplify
local leaders, enable social activism, hold
Governments accountable

Social Media

Global Health Month+
• Starting with April 22, with World Malaria Day, USAID has
looked at the topic of child survival through a series of different
lenses. These have included malaria, immunizations,
innovation, mothers, partnership, AIDS-Free Generation, family
planning and nutrition.
• Through each of these focuses we’ve utilized the networks of
our partners by cross-posting blogs and digital content on the
USAID blog and social media channels. In addition, we provided
a toolkit for partners for each focus area. The toolkit provided
event information, key messages, specific asks for engagement,
and sample social media content.
• We featured 40 partner blogs on USAID IMPACT
• Through the use of the #GHMatters hashtag, more than 1
million people have been engaged through our themed weeks.
