Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) believes in the power of communication to save lives by empowering people to adopt healthy behaviors for themselves, their families and their communities across the globe. Based at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and building on more than 30 years of experience, innovation and research, CCP has increased uptake of modern contraception, boosted the number of people tested and treated for HIV, given more children the opportunity to sleep under mosquito nets across Africa and Asia to improve health and economies across the world. These successes in social and behavior change stems from our reliance on proven behavioral science interventions.
