The MSK Social Marketing Model
MSK social marketing adopts a hybrid supply chain by having national and regional distributors to service specific markets and direct prepaid clients using the mobile money platform.
The program has a team of four medical detailors and ten sales agents covering 40 out of 47 counties in the country. The program covers Coast, Western, Rift Valley, Central-Eastern and Nairobi regions with level of effort focused on regions with highest burden of unintended pregnancies and induced abortions
Social Marketing Products
Currently social marketing has a portfolio of four products. These include; Mediprist, Misoclear, Easy Preg and Smart Lady. Misoclear accounted for the bulk of the sales revenue generated in 2013 followed by Mediprist. They both contributed to 92% of the sales revenue. Easy Preg and Smart Lady accounted for the balance of the 8%.
We plan to include more products in the coming years to increase our impact in the provision of reproductive health services to the people of Kenya
The greatest challenges have been lack of national standards and guidelines on safe abortion and post abortion care which the program is working with other partners together with the government to have in place.
How we deliver services:
