Uganda Health Communication Partnership (HCP)

Between 2007 and 2012, the USAID-funded Health Communication Partnership (HCP) Project developed and implemented communication strategies and tools and strengthened capacity in social and behavior change communication (SBCC) with the Ugandan government, international organizations, and local nongovernmental organizations. HCP was managed by The Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP). This project extended and expanded communication activities initiated between 2004 and 2007 under a previous USAID award to HCP. 

In order to work towards the shared goals of preventing and reducing mortality and morbidity and promoting health and improved quality of life, HCP worked hand-in-hand with the Government of Uganda and USAID to provide strategic and evidence based communication support in three areas:
  1. Improving the ability and motivation of Ugandans to use services and practice that enhance health;
  2. Fostering supportive social environments to enable positive health behaviour; and
  3. Strengthening capacity for sustained health communication.

HCP has produced eight eToolkits to document the strategies, tools, communication materials and resources that have resulted from its partnerships. It is our hope that this will enable others to use and build on our work. Links to the toolkits can be found on the Programmes Tab of this toolkit.  To watch a video about HCP, click here.
