Health Risk Communication Programme

The Health Risk Communication Programme is Asia’s premier research institute and training centre for risk communication and health journalism. The programme advocates that communication is one of the most powerful tools for risk assessment, crisis mitigation, and disaster relief, and seeks to provide research and training to meet the needs of public health organisations, governments and international organisations.

The Programme works closely with governments and international organisations such as the United Nations, the World Health Organisation, and the European Union. The programme conducts studies and reports on topics ranging from the role of the media during natural disasters to the interface between human and animal health, and facilitates educational workshops, courses, and exchanges for journalists to develop their skills as health and risk communicators.
