This category is for resources related to the study and practice of intercultural and global communication.Intercultural communication is the study of how people or organizations communicate across cultures or national boundaries. Global communication refers more generally to problems in communication outside the Western societies where the field of communication studies originated.

Businesses offering intercultural training or communication services belong in a Business category.
To be accepted, a site must provide information about an educational or training program that teaches effective communication techniques for health-care issues or health-care settings.Health communication is a subfield that focuses on two major issues: 1. How communication techniques can be used to improve the public's understanding of health issues, such as smoking or diet. 2. How health care professionals, such as doctors, can communicate more effectively with patients. Health communication therefore overlaps with interpersonal communication and advertising/public relations. It is as likely to be taught in schools of Public Health as in traditional Speech Communication departments. The field is relatively new, dating back to the mid-1970s.
