For Juciano, the theme of Health Communication brings the importance of communication as a direct agent in the impact of health processes within society. “Every health process will need to be communicated. It is the quality of that communication that will tell you what kind of impact these actions can have. So the way of communicating, the strategies developed and the types of media that are used will impact at certain times”, highlights the researcher.
