Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) – Project Overview

HC3’s work in Côte d’Ivoire built on the activities begun under the PACT project, which was implemented by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health 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 SBC in promoting HIV service uptake, ART adherence, community-based care/support efforts, healthy social norms and couple communication. HC3 also strengthened the capacity of other SBC organizations in Côte d’Ivoire. The project works with local institutions to help develop their SBC capacity, as well as disseminate high-quality SBC tools and act as a key resource in this area. Finally, HC3 planned and implemented SBC programs designed to increase HIV prevention behaviors among high priority groups, including young girls, older men and those with multiple partners.
