Africa United launched in the fall of 2014 to meet a critical need for support and behavior change messages, and uses the power of celebrity – African footballers – to deliver these messages through media, sports, health and governmental distribution partners. The campaign has produced and distributed a series of videos, radio spots and print materials (e.g., posters, football cards, notebooks) that feature locally influential celebrities delivering health and support messages, and we work closely with CDC in-country teams and NGO partners to adapt materials to rapidly changing needs.
