Communication in advocacy
Why do I need it?
Communication is an essential part of advocacy. Diverse activities like educating patients and the public, policy work and multi-stakeholder collaborations are in the end forms of communication. Successful communication is the key ingredient to turn a good idea into successful advocacy.

Developing your message
The first draft of your manifesto is not the final one. Once you’ve written down a plan, go over it again to refine it and tighten it up. Step away from it for a while and come back to it with a fresh mind to catch any weaknesses in your argument, or ask a friend to look over what you’ve written to use him/her as a sounding board for things you might not have thought of.
