Social behavior change (SBC) programs are uniquely placed to make a difference in achieving gender transformative goals. Integrating gender into SBC programs is key to promoting gender equality and achieving intended outcomes among men and women, and boys and girls.
Breakthrough RESEARCH, with input from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and cross-sectoral implementing partners, developed research and learning agendas (RLAs) to strengthen two important areas of social and behavior change (SBC) programming: integrated SBC programming and provider behavior change (PBC).
While many Senegalese mothers visit health facilities to immunize their newborns, far fewer discuss family planning options with a health worker. Integrating family planning counseling into immunization services is a promising practice to address reproductive health needs in the extended postpartum period. A project supported by Ideas42 and IntraHealth developed a behaviorally informed model that integrates these two services to help more women access the family planning option that is right for them.
Breakthrough RESEARCH, under work led by ideas42, applied behavioral design to assess the behavioral challenges that prevent providers in Zambia from providing respectful maternal care (RMC) in urban and rural health care settings.
Breakthrough RESEARCH is designing three complementary studies in Zambia, Nigeria, and Democratic Republic of Congo to evaluate the impact of integrated social and behavior change (SBC) programs.
