Health Communication Capacity Collaborative

hc3The Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3), a five-year project funded by USAID, envisions a world where health communication is transformative.

It is designed to strengthen developing country capacity to implement state-of-the-art social and behavior change communication (SBCC) programs. Among the important health areas addressed by HC3 are:

  • Family planning and reproductive health
  • Child survival
  • Maternal and child health
  • HIV and AIDS
  • Malaria, TB and other infectious diseases; and non-communicable diseases.

The project also offers expertise in social and behavior change for gender equity, environment, and democracy and governance.

HC3’s goal is to foster vibrant communities of practice at the national, regional and global level that support improved evidence-based programming and continued innovation. In addition, the project’s specialized area of technical expertise uniquely positions it to complement, support or enhance SBCC projects already underway.

Led by CCP in partnership with Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and NetHope, and specialized communication partners Internews, Population Services International (PSI) and Ogilvy Public Relations, HC3 strengthens in-country capacity to implement state-of-the-art health communication in order to ensure the sustainability of evidence-based behavior change programming.
