Guide topics include:
The Public Health Communications Collaborative has created a new Plain Language for Public Health guide to support public health communicators in creating messaging to advance health literacy, build trust in your organization as a source of information, and promote overall community health. In this guide, you’ll find plain language principles, simple techniques that can make your communications more accessible, and resources to learn more about plain language to help build your communications skills.
Recognizing and incorporating the diversity of people’s cultures, values, and beliefs is essential to effectively communicating with multicultural audiences. Through culturally driven communications, public health professionals can prioritize the preferences and perspectives of target audiences and ensure each priority population feels represented within messaging, visuals, and outreach.
The Public Health Communications Collaborative and HCN co-created “Strategies for Developing Culturally Driven Public Health Communications” to support public health communicators in effectively communicating with multicultural audiences. This guide is divided into three sections – messaging, visuals, and outreach – to support the development of your public health communications. Each section offers strategies and tools to help you create materials that build stronger relationships, increase credibility, and improve health outcomes.
