UK Social Marketing Conference:14th September 2017

The first UK Social Marketing Conference in ten years will be held in London on the 14th September, 2017 at the Queen Mary University of London.

Ten years after the creation of the National Social Marketing Centre (NSMC) in the UK, the conference will reflect on the successes (and challenges) of the last decade and plot a positive future direction for the discipline.

Some reflections on the 5th World Social Marketing Conference

A couple of weeks ago we were in Washington D.C. for the 5th World Social Marketing Conference. It seems like just yesterday that The NSMC was organising the 1st World Conference in Brighton and over the past decade the conference has been held in Ireland, Canada and Australia and now it was the USA’s turn to host the event.

Below, Dr Rowena Merritt of The NSMC, reflects on the conference:

NSMC working in South Africa with Medecins Sans Frontieres

The NSMC are currently working with the highly respected Doctors without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres) on a project in the platinum mining belt in South Africa.  The aim of this project based in Rustenburg is to get women and men who have been raped or suffered sexual abuse to attend specially designed MSF clinics that provide essential medical and counselling support.  Despite the fact that recent statistics show that around 40% of women in the area have been sexually assaulted at some point in their lifetime, the numbers of people coming to the centre are still relatively low.
