In response to a United States Agency for International Development (USAID) request, the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) – based at the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) – conducted a social and behavior change communication (SBCC) landscape for Zika in four Central American countries: Honduras, El Salvador, Dominican Republic and Guatemala. Due to the urgent nature of Zika, HC3 moved quickly to conduct the four landscaping visits in March and April 2016. These were not lengthy situational analyses, but rather agile observation visits to quickly take the pulse of the Zika situation and the local response.
This report is the culmination of that landscaping exercise. Below are the observations and impressions of the HC3 team, as well as concrete recommendations for USAID to consider as it formulates its strategy to support neighbors to the south in continuing to combat and prevent Zika.
