The Center for Communication Programs Nigeria (CCPN) specializes in the development and implementation of strategic health communication projects designed to improve the lives of Nigerians. Whether the goal is to prevent malaria, promote family planning or boost nutrition for young children, CCPN’s health communication campaigns have measurable impact. CCPN was created as an innovative means to ensure the availability of high quality communication expertise in Nigeria and to support health and development programming.

Current Projects

In partnership with Nollywood, CCPN recently debuted Newman Street, an action-packed television drama that sends messages about malaria prevention and family planning to audiences throughout Nigeria. CCPN is also a partner in the very successful Gates-funded Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (NURHI), a program that generates demand for and sustaining use of contraceptives in marginalized urban populations. Additionally, CCPN seeks to improve nutrition for young children through the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition and the Community-based management of Acute Malnutrition.

Since 2008, CCPN has organized and conducted an annual “Leadership in Strategic Health Communication” workshop in Nigeria. This is a cornerstone of CCPN’s capacity building mission.
