Health Communications

Health communication is an impactful mechanism for health information exchange between senders and receivers; that is, between the government institutions/organization and people. Communication can lead to behavior changes in the community.

With the philosophy ‘Information is power”, the Health Communications Unit plays an important role in creating health education tools, guidelines and strategies for communicating information to the public to ensure behavior changes.
