The Editions


The original Basic edition of CDCynergy presents an overall methodology for health communication planning and implementation. It contains case examples illustrating the planning model, a wealth of reference resources and materials, and a guide to planning and evaluating a health communication project.

CDC programs and partners have tailored the CDCynergy Basic Edition to create new editions highlighting how the CDCynergy planning model can be applied to specific health problems and within specific disciplines within public health. These editions also provide custom case examples of possible health communication interventions in a specific problem area.

The list of tailored editions continues to grow as public health professionals explore the benefits of targeting case examples, resources, and media files to a specific public health problem area. Professionals interested in a specific tailored edition should contact the CDC program or partner that produced the tailored edition. Below is a list of the current tailored editions and contacts.
