World Health Day – Health Communication

The World Health Organisation celebrates World Health Day on 7 April every year, so what better time to look at the subject of Health Communication.

Health Communication has always been an important and vital subject, and with the onset of the Internet and social media, this form of communication has a whole new avenue to spread those important messages.

But health communication is more than just about the message, it is about the people to whom those messages are communicated to, how those messages will be perceived and their impact. Those messages are vitally important and many a times it could mean the difference between life or death. Think about the recent Ebola epidemic and the Dengue outbreak and you will realize how important crafting and executing those messages are.

This year, the theme for World Health Day is the proper preparation of food and food safety. If you were to embark on promoting such a campaign, how would you execute it?

The library has a wealth of books on Health Communication; all you have to do is click here and then head to the library to borrow these items.

Have a safe day.
