A project of READY consortium member the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs, the CCN is intended primarily for social and behavior change (SBC) and risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) professionals, but is available to anyone in need of COVID-19 communication materials.CCN curates essential, evidence-informed tools and resources to help health and development professionals use social and behavior change communication (SBCC) to address the global pandemic of COVID-19 through four key strategies:
- Clear and engaging communication of the facts about prevention, treatment, care, and support
- Reduction of stigma against those infected and those being blamed for infecting
- Busting myths and misconceptions
- Accessing promising approaches from around the world
The collection of more than 300 resources is searchable and filterable by resource type, topic, audience, country/region, source, and language.
