“Sound communication strategies provide coherence for a health program’s activities and enhance the health program’s power to succeed. Strategic communication is the program’s steering wheel, guiding it towards its goals. Strategic communication is also the glue that holds the program together or the creative vision that integrates a program’s multifaceted activities.”
