Social marketing designs products or services to meet the special needs of poor people. This chapter focuses on this unique contribution of social marketing, developed out of the necessity to compensate for dysfunctional public systems. It offers lessons about social marketing to low-income rural populations; uses examples from developing countries to show that social marketing can work when targeting poorer communities; and provides valuable lessons that social marketers can learn and apply in their own local interventions.

Keywords: social marketing initiatives; poor people; developing countries; public welfare
