According to the latest findings in individual report part one, our low-income target audiences have higher fast food consumption than those in high-income area. We know that poor lifestyle and fast food consumption increase the likelihood of being diagnosed with bowel cancer by 2.7 times.
Healthier lifestyle behaviours such as healthy eating, regular physical activity may reduce the risk of cancer recurrence and improve the life for patients living with bowel cancer, but the intention to change those health behaviours may vary depending on availabilities of resource, and time (Susan, M., Robert, W. 2018).
We aim to use appropriate social marketing strategies and campaigns to provide more information and recommendations on how to minimize the risk of bowel cancer through improved lifestyle and early screening.Product design and platformBowel cancer screening kit is designed to check early signs of bowel cancer in our target audiences who do not have bowel cancer or do not have any obvious signs but have a higher risk of getting this disease.
This innovative product brings significant benefit in bow cancer early detection. The simple screening instructions saves time and increases the chance of detecting bowel cancer at an early stage, cancer mortality is decreased at the same time. The design principles of the screening kit provide simple, fast, cost effective and accurate diagnosis in bowel cancer.
Over the years, our team created unique technological platforms that are used to design and develop products for early detection of different types of cancers. With shared characteristics, these range of products are derived from the same core technology and architecture. The bow cancer screening kit and companion products for other cancer are designed to help people to identify, manage and treat the disease (Markus A. Feufel1, Tamera R. S., and Hans J. B. 2010).
In price setting, our team must take into account various factors (i.e., lack of insurance, transportation cost and cost of screening) in line with the benefit and value of our product to remain attractive to people. Pricing strategies to minimize an economic barrier for bowel cancer screening: Proving low cost or free screening service.

PromotionWe will hold a yearly Bowel Cancer Awareness Month campaign in encouraging our target audience to reduce junk food consumption, increase physical activity, promote other positive health behaviour, and encourage not yet screened people to be screened for bowel cancer.

We will invite a health professional as a guest speaker who is well-known in cancer care and practice to spread awareness message during the campaign, motivate and empower already screened participants to tell their stories and encourage other people to be screened.
This campaign offers a unique opportunity for participant to interact with the guest speaker to raise awareness on bowel cancer risks its impact on people who are diagnosed with this disease in our community.Strategies that is actionable and understand the participants can be incorporated. Future cancer prevention and treatment methods must be communicated to the participants.
