PACE’s policy communication and media training programs build local capacity by expanding the roster of advocacy and policy champions and strengthening the capacity of journalists who educate and motivate supporters.
POLICY COMMUNICATION AND ADVOCACY
Empower regional institutions, individuals, and local partners with the skills to effectively mobilize communities and reach policymakers.
Policy Communication Fellows
The Policy Fellows program aims to bridge the gap between research findings and the policy development process. While research often has profound policy implications, it must be communicated effectively to a variety of nontechnical audiences in order to have an impact.
Policy Communication Toolkit
Our new Policy Communication Toolkit is a resource to bridge the gap that often lies between research and policy. It consolidates tools, materials, and approaches PRB has developed and refined over 30 years of training researchers to communicate to policy audiences.
A new Youth Leaders module provides a curriculum that meaningfully engages youth to develop their policy communication knowledge and skills.
PACE is showcasing talented alumni of our capacity strengthening programs in a series of profiles that highlight how the skills they learned with PACE and other PRB projects shape their efforts to influence policy change.

Not A Different Lens, But a Wider Lens: Women’s Edition
For nearly 30 years, PRB’s Women’s Edition has trained, connected, and championed women journalists covering news about health and population. The program has evolved to meet a changing media and public health landscape, but its animating values are consistent: focus media attention on women’s perspectives and experiences and give women journalists the resources and opportunities to help them stake a larger claim in their newsrooms. PACE has captured these lessons through the lens of a recent case study, a cross-border series that highlights these core approaches.
We Will Be Heard! A Multimedia Advocacy Toolkit for Young People Fighting for Change
This toolkit was developed for youth advocates to teach each other policy advocacy, communication, and multimedia storytelling skills. Training participants will learn how to present their messages in a professional, attractive, and effective way so they might persuade individual supporters, community leaders, powerholders, and policymakers to take action in support of a policy goal.
Youth Multimedia Campaigns
PACE’s Youth Multimedia Campaigns training program equips youth advocates with the skills to create innovative digital campaigns, tell compelling population health stories, and build movements for policy change within their countries. Using data-driven multimedia and events, youth participants collaborate with their peers to share powerful advocacy messages focused on the health and well-being of their communities.
Women’s Edition brings together senior-level women editors, reporters, and producers from influential media organizations in developing countries to examine and report on pressing issues affecting women’s health and status.
