Create communication and awareness campaigns

How to implement

  • Create communication and awareness campaigns that promote community wellbeing and spread the word about healthy living.
    • Your messages will travel further if you use a range of communication methods, such as radio, social media, local newspapers and newsletters.
    • Tailor your information so that it makes sense to the intended audience (e.g., young people, recent immigrants, parents and/or healthcare professionals).
    • Ensure your messages are credible and based on evidence. Provide links to information sources where possible.
