Breakthrough ACTION Nepal Social and Behavior Change Capacity Self-Assessment Report, 2019
Breakthrough ACTION Nepal’s social and behavior change (SBC) system-strengthening project (2018–2020) supports the institutional and technical capacity of the Government of Nepal (GON) to design, implement, evaluate, and coordinate SBC programs within its newly federalized landscape.
The project aims to strengthen the SBC system in Nepal so that stakeholders can address the health needs of local households and communities and ultimately improve outcomes across family planning, nutrition, and maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health.
Findings from baseline assessments helped to identify key gaps in SBC capacity, including a lack of understanding about SBC, lack of evidence-based SBC program design and planning, and inadequate coordination among stakeholders. To address these gaps, Breakthrough ACTION Nepal designed activities to strengthen the country’s SBC systems for health around needs and opportunities at the municipal level.
