Utilizing Communication to Enhance Public Health in the Western Pacific Region

In today’s digital age, strategic communication has become a vital tool in the field of public health. It involves utilizing expertise, skills, and resources to plan, execute and assess interventions that persuade governments to adopt policies that promote the well-being of individuals, empower healthcare professionals to provide optimal care, and influence individuals to take steps to safeguard and improve their own health as well as that of their families and communities. The Regional Action Framework on Communication for Health (C4H) is designed to assist Member States in adopting this approach. This framework provides guidance to the World Health Organization (WHO) and Member States on how to effectively use C4H to achieve common public health objectives in the Western Pacific region.
