Resources and materials

IAPO produced a pack of resources and materials to help members and other patient advocates build strong campaigns and activities for the Day.  This included a handbook with key messages and ideas for different activities, an articles and press releases, graphics, posters and banners. We designed the resources to be simple, adaptable and easily to replicate. Many organizations printed banners, posters and fliers with the logo and slogan to advertise their events. Others adapted the resources to make the campaign their own.
