Why It Matters

Every day in so many ways, the work of the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs makes a difference in the lives of people around the world.

Our mission: to inspire and empower people to make healthy choices for themselves and their families, from using condoms to sleeping under bed nets to visiting a doctor when they are sick. Since our founding more than three decades ago, our messages have reached one billion people from the cities of Nigeria to the most rural outpost in Nepal.

Only through stories of those we have helped along the way can we show you the kind of true impact we have made, how what we do really matters. Explore some of our recent stories from the field below.
