A New Guidance for RCCE Coordination in Public Health Emergencies

National governments are responsible for implementing Risk Communication and Community Engagement (RCCE) as a key pillar of their respective public health response, as articulated in the International Health Regulations (2005). However, civil society at all levels, together with a multitude of others including the media and private sector, should (and often do) also support the government and its partners to fulfil this responsibility.

This guidance document designed by the Collective Service provides ways to ensure predictable, sustainable and well-functioning RCCE coordination platforms, strategies and approaches that work with the government and partners, at national, state and local levels.
