COMPLETE 2013 SOTS REPORT
All state IVP programs provided some form of communication to target populations, partners, local groups, or others engaged in IVP in 2013. However, when states were asked if their injury and violence prevention program had an “official” communications plan, only four states (9%) reported that such a plan existed.
- In 2013, the most common method of communication was through a website (94%).
- State IVP programs also used interviews with local media (TV, radio, newspaper, etc.) (72%), social media platforms (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, etc.) (62%), newsletters (52%), and advertisements/public service announcements (45%).
