Information- Useful and representative data on a related issue.
Education- The process of transferring and embedding information.
Communication- A process through which two or more people share transfer of information, and which is complete only after compliance by both the parties on whether the information and education have been perceived in the same way as transmitted.

BCC (Behavioral Change Communication) in itself is a topic, explaining which in words is a tedious work to do. Well let me see! And you guys try making sense out of what I’m writing.
