Communication For Health Will Support SBCC Capacity of Local Communities in Ethiopia

Communication for Health LaunchCCP Executive Director Susan Krenn joined HE Dr. Kesetebirhan Admasu, Minister of Health in Ethiopia, and Ramona El Hamzaoui, Acting Mission Director for USAID Ethiopia, to announce the launch of a multiplatform social and behavior change communication (SBCC) project, Communication for Health, to be based in Ethiopia.


Over a five-year period (2015 – 2020), Communication for Health aims to measurably contribute to the adoption of healthy behaviors by Ethiopians in four regions — Amhara, Oromia, SNNPR and Tigray— by strengthening SBCC capacity at the national, regional and sub-regional levels. The project’s ultimate goal is to increase knowledge and health practices of individuals and communities while supporting systems to improve the quality, capacity and coordination of SBCC programs. Communication for Health is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and will be led by CCP in partnership with the Ethiopian Ministry of Health and John Snow, Inc. (JSI). Other partners include; Regional Health Bureaus, Ethiopian Public Health Institute, Civil Society Organizations, and Public Health Universities.


Ethiopia has made significant progress in improving access to health services, developing policies and strategies that include health promotion and community ownership, and meeting important millennium development goals (MDGs). Policy initiatives and preventive measures, as well as community involvement and ownership, have contributed to remarkable outcomes in expanding access to health care. Despite this progress, more Ethiopians die from preventable causes than the global average.


Communication for Health will work across multiple health areas, including Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (RMNCH); Malaria; Tuberculosis (TB); Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH); Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV (PMTCT); and Nutrition. One of the key features of Communication for Health will be an Integrated Campaign Platform (ICP) which provides a trusted, recognizable and credible platform to introduce or build on communication interventions. It organizes health messaging in a coherent and coordinated way through multiple channels to support community-based health workers. The ICP serves as a centerpiece for integrating media to convey the variety of health issues while using a phased approach to messaging to avoid fatigue and confusion.


The project was announced during the inaugural International SBCC Summit, held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Summit is hosted by USAID, the Ministry of Health of Ethiopia, and the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative, which is led by CCP.

    Doctor Who is now considered a British Institute and has come a long way since it first aired on November 23rd 1963. The very first show saw the Doctor travel 100,00 years into the past to help some dim cavemen discover light. After 26 seasons and seven Doctors later the series came off our screens in 1989 much to the disappointment of the huge devoted fanbase. In 1996 an attempt was made to revive Doctor Who but it wasnt until June 2005 when it came back with a vengeance with Christopher Eccleston as the ninth Doctor that put the series back on the map as it were. It then went on for 5 years with David Tenant portraying the Doctor until 2010 when Matt Smith took over the role. Today it is still a great family show and has attracted many new fans.

    Some people, especially those running on busy daily schedules tend to use the pills to help maintain weight since they can not afford to follow all the diet programs. This is not advised. It is recommended that one seek advice from a professional in this field before using the pills. This can save one from many dangers associated with the misuse.

    The diet pills should always be taken whole. Some people tend to divide the pills to serve a longer period of time. This is not advised and can lead to ineffectiveness. If it is required that one takes a complete tablet, it means that a certain amount of the ingredients are required to achieve the desired goal. It is also recommended that one does not crush the pill and dissolve it in beverages. Chemicals found in beverages have the potential of neutralizing the desired nutrients in the pill thereby leading to ineffectiveness. The best way to take the tablets is swallowing them whole with a glass of water.

    The diet pills speed up the metabolic processes. This is the key factor that leads to the burning of all the fats in the body. This means that one passes out lots of urine, which subsequently leads to dehydration. It is imperative that the user take lots of water round the clock. This will help curb dehydration, which can lead to health problems. In addition to that, water offers the required medium for the function of the nutrients and elimination of the fats.

    When buying the review of diet pills, it is imperative that one gets the most recommended dose. People tend to compromise the quality and effectiveness of the tablets due to the variation in cost. The low priced pills depict poor quality, which means their effectiveness is not reliable. Some have also been found to cause health problems. The dose should also be taken as recommended. Over dose will not speed up the process but rather lead to complication. This will increase risk of side effects. If the taking of the pill is forgotten, do not take more to compensate for the lost time.

    The diet plan enclosed with the diet pills has also to be followed. According to the requirements, the termination of the diet must be done even with no results. This means your body is irresponsive.

    I noticed a lump under my armpit. Initially it was small. The pain was not felt. Now rubbing and increasing. My friends like do not. Recently found out that it can be severe malaise. But most likely, obviously fatty lump. Found understandable information about this lump. Now I'm not afraid of terrible diagnosis. Everything is clear and detail is written down to the smallest detail.
    Many have problems with the armpits. There are a lot of microbes. Then arise balls. They can be painful, but not always. It is better to know in advance about this problem. Then there will be no fear of horror. Good, that now I understand this.
