Social and behavior change (SBC) approaches target multiple levels of this ecosystem and are thus a pivotal part of family planning (FP) programming – impacting the interpersonal relationships, community structures, and social norms that guide individual behavior. Evidence based SBC interventions can increase knowledge of FP, shift attitudes and norms, and influence behaviors around contraceptive use.

In Côte d’Ivoire, Transform/PHARE developed and tested an intervention that captured insights from model Family Planning (FP) providers to inform recommendations to the Ministry of Health (MOH), professional associations, and FP implementing partners for replicating and facilitating the conditions for provider excellence.
