2.       Background               

Communication for Health (C4H) leverages the power of communications as a tool for health. Evidence-based, strategic communications is an extremely powerful tool for tackling complex health challenges. Whether it be promoting health-protective behaviours for COVID-19, increasing vaccination rates, reducing stigma around mental health, or advocating for inclusive health policies, strategic communication can play an important role. The WHO Cambodia office works to strengthen country capacities, specifically in the Ministry of Health, in health security, health systems strengthening, and preventing, controlling and eliminating communicable and non-communicable diseases. Different types of communication mechanisms, such as risk communications, community engagement, community protection, and social and behaviour change are key pillars in the C4H approach that supports the strengthening of these capacities.

 This is why WHO is scaling up its use of C4H to achieve health priorities in the Western Pacific Region, and is supporting Member States to apply the C4H approach for improved health outcomes at the individual, community and societal levels.
