● Background research on the issue(s) and audience(s)
There are several issues that exist in the implementation of this communication strategy. Below they are mentioned:
- There are only 2 to 3% Australian who are suitable as organ donors.
- Low level of awareness regarding donation and registration in a particular segment in Australia.
- It has been observed that in the community groups, campaigning needs to be generated by considering the sensitive issue which restricts the activities of communication programmes.
● Publics: segmented
The target segment for this communication plan is 18 to 25-year-old Australian. This target segment has been selected because there is a huge lack of awareness among this particular target segment regarding organ and tissue donation. The report of Govt (2020), reveals that around 88% Australian of this age bar register themselves as a donor, but among them, only 14% of the population signed up for donation. That is why this particular segment has been targeted to spread awareness.
The primary goals of this communication campaign plan are as follows:
- To promote high awareness among the age group of 18 to 25 about the importance of organ and tissue donation.
- To improve the capability and capacity of the health system by maximizing the donation rate in Australia.
- To develop awareness among the community group about organ and tissue donation through the promotion
- To enhance the stakeholder engagement in the organ and tissue donation in Australia
In this communication campaign plan of donating life week, some strategies will be followed to implement the plan successfully. The strategies are discussed below:
