CCP is currently implementing, from 2018-2020, a USAID-funded social and behavior change (SBC) systems strengthening project in collaboration with the National Health Education Information and Communication Center (NHEICC) and Family Welfare Division (FWD).

The project assessed SBC capacity at the federal, provincial (Karnali Province) and project municipalities in Jumla and Surkhet. Based on the assessment findings, CCP worked closely with NHEICC, Karnali Ministry of Social Development (MoSD), Karnali Health Directorate (HD), and municipality elected representatives (executive committee) and health staff to address SBC capacity gaps through trainings, mentoring, practical, learning by doing activities.

The SBC Palika (municipality) package was simultaneously conceptualized, designed, field-tested and developed. The SBC palika package is a job aid for municipality level personnel and stakeholders to plan, use and monitor SBC locally. The consolidated SBC Palika package has been reviewed extensively locally and provincially by stakeholders at the federal level. The project is now in the process of creating and testing a digital version of the SBC Palika package for easier access and use by 753 municipalities across Nepal.

Materials produced during this project include:
