From the Paper:

"Social marketing in the community refers that for adequate contraceptive behavior to occur, teenagers must first recognize that they risk becoming pregnant if they have intercourse and do not use contraceptive properly. Also important is the teenager's knowledge or perception concerning pregnancy risk. The teenage perception is a result why some teenagers do not use contraception. Teenagers must have the ability to generate ways in which they can reduce their risk of pregnancy such as contraceptive methods. Social marketers is expected to determine and maximize the most effective ways in which to heighten teenagers' personal perception of pregnancy risk, their understanding of the potential consequences of an unplanned pregnancy, and their awareness of available contraceptive methods. A social marketing objective is to promote discussions on contraceptive issues and a sense of shared responsibility among partners."
