Communication Skills Development

© 2009 Catherine Harbour, Courtesy of PhotoshareThe Communication Skills Development section for Effective Communications in the Family Planning Advocacy Toolkit suggests resources to help advocates who are working to educate policymakers and community leaders on the health and economic benefits of voluntary family planning for women, children and entire communities improve their capacity to share these important messages and enhance their effectiveness.

This section contains resources on:

  • Preparing briefs and presentations and knowing which type of brief will be most effective for a particular audience
  • Presenting data and evidence
  • Helping decision-makers turn data into actionable steps and positive policy changes
