Vision and Mission


We design communication solutions that solve public health problems. Our core strengths include:

  • Social and behavior change communication – to influence social norms and individual health behaviors
  • Knowledge Management – to put correct, concise and timely information into the hands of health providers
  • Capacity Strengthening – of communication professionals at all levels, in all types of organizations
  • Research and Evaluation – to build the evidence base for our work and our field

CCP was established over 30 years ago in recognition of the pivotal role communication plays in the way people think and behave about health and development issues. We are a Center within the Department of Health, Behavior and Society at the Bloomberg School of Public Health. CCP has active programs in more than 30 countries worldwide as well as in the U.S.

Most importantly, CCP makes a difference in people’s lives.
