Abstract:

Objective: To develop and evaluate a new community-based social marketing (CBPM) model. Methods: CBPM is being piloted to prevent the initiation of smoking and alcohol consumption among middle-school students. The project's impact on behavioral outcomes and the community's ability to use CBPM to solve public health problems are being evaluated. Results: Community members have demonstrated an unexpected level of interest in learning CBPM and applying its principles to program planning. Conclusion: Community control of the social marketing process has the potential to enhance program integration into existing community structures, making them more effective and sustainable.
