Tools to support effective communication

ECDC brings together health communication research and best practices, and develops practical resources with the aim to assist public health authorities in Member States in their health promotion initiatives. ECDC’s communication tools have a significant added value both at a communication and economic level. Customisable tools can greatly lessen the costs of communication campaigns by saving time and resources and help spreading common and coherent messages throughout the EU. These tools can serve as input for countries that have not yet developed specific health communication programmes or as bank of ideas for those who have already implemented specific campaigns.
