  14. 14. Results 2000 2008 69% recalled campaign 72% claimed they had recently seen/heard something about syphilis before the media campaign, compared to only 67% after Of these, 23% took action Of those who heard something before the campaign, 50% got tested. Of those who heard something after the campaign, only 31% got tested Standard for successful marketing campaigns = 3-5% take action Those that heard the syphilis message before the media campaign were more likely to have been tested in the past 3 months (41% compared to 22%) or in the past year (73% compared to 39%).
  15. 15. Analysis – Lessons Learned 2000 2008 Target population not knowledgeable about syphilis or general health matters Target population very knowledgeable Target population very concerned about syphilis and motivated to avoid infection Target population not concerned and not motivated Much larger budget, professional planning and implementation Small budget, no formative research or professional planning of campaign Message deliberately developed by focus group No focus group; Message developed by committee; diluted by media placement needs Outbreak linked to an issue important to activities (neighborhoods) Outbreak not linked to issue of importance (may be due to no significant input by MSM)

Analysis, cont. <ul><li>2000 campaign “successful” </li></ul><ul><li>2008 campaign “ not so much”! </li></ul><ul><li>Attributed to budget for each and population differences </li></ul><ul><li>“ Yes, I saw the posters in the bathhouse about syphilis but I didn’t think that had anything to do with me” </li></ul><ul><li>Success of reaching community through word of mouth and community activities in 2008 may have confounded evaluation of media activities </li></ul>
