Malaria

Avec un financement de U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), (Initiative présidentielle américaine contre le paludisme), le projet Breakthrough ACTION, géré par le Centre des Programmes de Communication (CCP) de Johns Hopkins, a collaboré avec le Programme National de Lutte contre le Paludisme (PNLP) et d’autres parties prenantes du pays pour mettre en œuvre une enquête comportementale vis-à-vis du paludisme (désignée en anglais par : Malaria Behavior Survey-MBS) sur les déterminants psychosociaux des comportements vis-à-vis du paludisme au sein d’un échantillon représentatif de ménages en Côte d’Ivoire.

In 2011, the Support for Service Delivery Integration (SSDI)-Communication was implemented by JHU/CCP in collaboration with Save the Children. SSDI-Communication developed and disseminated behavior change communication materials on 6six priority health areas- family planning and reproductive health, malaria, HIV/AIDS, maternal, neonatal and child health, nutrition, and WASH.

Communication plays a powerful role in addressing behavioral barriers and shaping demand for health products and services. Uptake of short-acting methods of contraception and combined use of ORS and zinc to manage child diarrhea remains low in India.

Social marketing as a public health intervention has existed for several decades and is familiar to donors and governments in many countries. In some cases, it may be necessary to advocate for the intervention when its benefits and potential health impact are not well understood by local stakeholders.

As part of the GoodLife campaign, in June 2011 BCS and ProMPT, in partnership with the National Malaria Control Programme and the Ghana Health Service, launched the new “Aha ye de” malaria campaign. “Aha ye de” means “It’s Good Here” in Twi, one of Ghana’s national languages.

Funded by USAID, and running from 2004-2012, HCP was a global project managed by JHU CCP, to develop and implement communication strategies and strengthen capacity in social and behavior change communication (SBCC) for improved health in Uganda. Working in partnership with the Ugandan government and its partners, including USAID Implementing Partners, the project focused primarily on HIV prevention, care, treatment, and support; sexual and reproductive health of young people; family planning; malaria control; and TB control; while strengthening national SBCC capacity.
