|CDC Selects ICF’s Award-Winning Health Communications Practice|
ICF Continues Tobacco Prevention Work & Will Lead Campaigns Against Opioid Abuse, Antibiotic Resistance
“ICF has a robust history of working with CDC to change behavior around
some of the world’s most pressing public health issues, including
prescription drug overdose, tobacco use among youth and diabetes in
high-risk populations,” said
With the new contracts, the first eight of which were awarded in the third quarter, the CDC will tap ICF’s leading capabilities in campaign development, research, creative, digital advertising, traditional and social media, social marketing, and stakeholder engagement.
The first agreement is a new task order with CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) for ICF to provide comprehensive, integrated communications, marketing, technical assistance, and materials development to support OSH’s tobacco prevention efforts. ICF will also develop materials and messaging to support the agency’s media and outreach efforts to promote the recently released Surgeon General’s report on tobacco use and other high-profile publications. This task order was awarded under a 10-year Communications Services blanket purchase agreement (BPA) won by ICF last year.
