  • Social and behavioural factors drive health seeking behaviour and adherence to public health measures, which significantly contribute to the success of a public health response.
  • Development of risk communications must always take societal, religious and cultural norms into consideration.
  • While a successful public health emergency response must include strategic communications, there is a need to incorporate it into the design of prevention and preparedness measures as well, to promote knowledge, attitude and practices for healthy behaviours that will then transcend into the response.
