Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3)

HC3’s work in Côte d’Ivoire built on the activities begun under the Prévention Active et Communication Transformatrice / Active Prevention and Transformative Communication (PACT) project, which was implemented by Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP).

HC3 strengthened the capacity of local stakeholders to implement SBCC programs that support HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment services. In particular, HC3 enhanced the effectiveness of SBCC in promoting HIV service uptake, ART adherence, community-based care/support efforts, healthy social norms and couple communication.
