Health communication and its role in the prevention and control of communicable diseases in Europe: Current evidence, practice and future developments
The overall aim of the Translating Health Communication research project was to support the use and development of health communication activities for the prevention and control of communicable diseases in EU and EEA countries. This three-year research project consisted initially of two main strands of work: primary information gathering and synthesis of evidence. The multiple outputs from these two strands were further analysed through a SWOC (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, challenges) analysis. Subsequently the results were developed via an online expert consultation process. Finally, all key project findings were considered against a Public Health Capacity Development Framework. This final project component identifies the future strategic actions required for strengthening capacity in Europe to develop evidence-informed health communication for communicable diseases.
