Communication for Health Ethiopia

Thr Communication for Health project, the flagship Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) project was implemented in Ethiopia from June 2015 to December 2020, with funding and technical support provided by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). CCP and subcontractor John Snow, Inc. (JSI) partnered with the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) and regional health bureaus (RHBs) to build the health system’s capacity in SBCC and implement innovative SBCC interventions to improve the health practices of individuals and communities.

Communication for Health intervened in 160 woredas in four major regions—Amhara, Oromia, South Nations Nationals and Peoples (SNNP), and Tigray—across six health areas: reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH); prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT); malaria; nutrition; tuberculosis; and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). The project added Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) activities in 2018, focusing on emerging infectious disease risk communication for the country’s priority zoonotic diseases: rabies, anthrax, brucellosis, and avian influenza.
