Roles of Agencies and Stakeholders for SBC for Health

Date of Publication

Breakthrough ACTION Nepal supported the Government of Nepal (GON) to draft, extensively review, approve, and disseminate roles and responsibilities related to SBC for health. 

Role clarifications were achieved through interactions and discussions with (a) GON staff at the rural/urban municipal level; (b) representatives from provinces 1–6; and (c) staff at the National Health Education, Information, and Communication Center (NHEICC) at the central level. This effort explicated the SBC-related roles and clarified the municipality, province, and center linkages and lines of authority and support, especially between province and municipality. SBC roles and responsibilities drafted through the discussions have been provided to the municipalities, Karnali Province MOSD, and NHEICC. The SBC roles are included in the SBC Palika Package.
