The Centre for Communication and Social Impact (CCSI) provides critical and urgent technical, operational strategic communication design support to the Risk Communication pillar of the Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC). The support covers rapidly designing and adapting evidence-based information with compelling, practical, and locally targeted materials. It utilizes behavioral insights and embedded acceptable social norms surrounding important content for COVID-19 across all stages of the pandemic—containment, treatment and care. This support was funded by BMGF and UK AID SCRAP-C Project.
Many public health challenges such as: malnutrition, malaria, water borne diseases etc. faced by communities in Nigeria are largely preventable. Several rural communities in Nigeria lack access to safe drinking-water, sanitation and hygiene services; malaria prevention and treatment services; as well as access to family planning (FP)/childbirth spacing (CBS) services. Women in rural areas are more likely to marry earlier than their urban counterparts, increasing the need for modern family planning. However, women in rural areas are less likely to use modern contraceptives when compared to their urban counterparts.
The rate of deaths caused by Tuberculosis in Nigeria is on the high rise as 120,000 persons die annually due to the deadly disease. Watch as these TB Survivors share their journey through the healing process.
