Pelucio Silva, Regional Information Officer, UNICEF, Santiago. Paper for Americas Regional Staff mtg, 22-26 Sept 1980.||Chile; Programme support communications; Communication for social change; Communication strategy||22.
Interesting analysis of the relationship between media and culture, and their influence on social conditions and development. The paper discusses the role of public information as an important aspect of UNICEF's work, outlines limiting factors -- such as the necessity to maintain good relations with the government; the necessity for credibility. Communication needs and methods vary greatly between countries in the region. Should messages promote UNICEF programmes, or focus on the region itself -- rather than focussing on improving UNICEF's image, they should perhaps direct attention to the situation of children.
