Center for Communication Programs CCP

of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health – We have five core areas of expertise:

  • Social and behavior change communication—we consistently find new, participatory ways to reach audiences with persuasive messages.
  • Knowledge management—we make information easily accessible through efficient capture, organization, and delivery mechanisms.
  • Training and capacity building—we seek to develop a cadre of public health professionals who are well-versed in strategic communication.
  • Strategic advocacy—we use an evidence-based approach to deliver accurate information and achieve measurable results.
  • Research and evaluation—our scientific, research-based approach guides the development, implementation and evaluation of all of our programs. (What we do).
