COVID-19 Communication Network

The COVID-19 Communication Network is a reliable site for social and behavior change professionals, and other responders in need, to access and share high quality communication materials, tools and resources from global partners to address the COVID-19 pandemic.

CCN curates essential, evidence informed tools and resources to help health and development professionals use SBCC to address the global pandemic of COVID-19 through four key strategies:

  • Clear and engaging communication of the facts about prevention, treatment, care and support
  • Reduction of stigma against those infected and those being blamed for infecting
  • Busting myths and misconceptions
  • Accessing promising approaches from around the world

In addition to its collection of tools and resources, CCN also curates the latest updates related to the COVID-19 response and  SBC issues related to vaccine rollout including hesitancy and acceptance.

The COVID-19 Communication Network is curated and maintained by Breakthrough ACTION and supported by contributions from those working globally and locally in the response to COVID-19. CCN is teamed closely with The Compass for SBC, a curated collection of social and behavior change (SBC) resources. The collection offers the highest quality “how-to” tools and packages of materials from SBC projects.  Each item in the Compass is vetted to ensure it was developed via a strategic process and had documented success in the field. Further, this site is closely linked with Springboard, an online community of SBC professionals who share experiences, ask/give advice, and enhance their skills.
