Health and Development Communication Conference. 27-29 June 2011.

Most of the challenges facing countries of the Southern hemisphere are rooted in either lack of information or poor utilization of available information. These problems are, in turn, driven by inadequate information, inaccessibility of information and poor skills in communicating the available information. This situation is particularly pronounced in the field of health, where basic information in areas such as public health, disease prevention, health promotion and policies on health care is not in the public domain. Those who generate this information have limited avenues to disseminate it to the public while those in the media with the capacity to communicate the information sometimes lack the necessary skills to access or appropriately communicate the information.  Further information
