The Social Entry Protocol for FHI360 encompasses a meticulously planned and executed strategy to gain Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC) for FHI360’s programmes. This critical process involves engaging with indigenous and local communities through a series of well-structured steps to ensure their autonomous decision-making rights are respected.

The protocol includes identifying and liaising with key community stakeholders, conducting transparent and inclusive consultations, providing comprehensive information about the programme’s potential impacts, and establishing robust feedback mechanisms. 


This approach is vital in safeguarding the rights, traditions, and aspirations of the communities involved, ensuring that FHI360’s interventions are conducted ethically, responsibly, and in alignment with international human rights standards.
