This course is intended to clarify the concepts of C4SD by focusing on social and ecological approaches to address policy advocacy, analyzing risk behaviors related to health and how to induce behavior change through strategic communication and infrastructure (power, supply) that affect the ability to communicate. Emphasis will be on how cultural, social, economic and political factors influence the individual’s choices and behavior in relation to health, prevention of diseases and health-seeking behaviors. Throughout the course, participants will learn how to analyze behavioral problems, set communication indicators that are measurable, plan, implement, monitor and evaluate results-oriented C4SD strategies and programs.
