Effective and continuous communication is essential for your efforts to be successful. It’s important to consider how you will get your most important messages to the people who matter – both internally (how will you and your partners communicate with each other?) and externally (how will you communicate with others in your community?).


Ensure effective communication with your partners, develop strategic messages, and deliver those messages to the right people.

Who to Involve

Look to the groups in the center of the Take Action Cycle. How will you harness the collective power of leaders, partners, and community members, including those who are experiencing the worst conditions for good health?
