Public Health Communications Strategies and Best Practices
Public health is important. Critical. A healthy population and environment provides the foundation of societal productivity, progress, community well-being, and so many other aspects that we strive to achieve in our human condition. To practitioners and advocates of public health policies, this fact is clearly evident and indisputable. Sadly, many other people, particularly those in positions of leadership, have a misunderstanding of the role public health policies play in our lives. At best, public health work is considered a necessary investment ‚Äúfor poor people.‚Äù At worst public health is perceived as an unneeded expense to be defunded when lean times hit. In order to reinforce the importance of public health work, and optimize the outcomes of public health initiatives, implementing an effective communications strategy is a must.
It is the purpose of this MWB ‚ÄúNot-Too-White Paper‚Äù to provide a resource for public health professionals in terms of best practices for the communications components of your programs. Click the image below to view and download a high resolution version.
