Social and Behavior Change Communication for Frontline Health Workers

C‐Change created this learning package to facilitate face‐to‐face workshops on social and behavior change communication (SBCC) and interpersonal communication (IPC) for health care workers (HCWs). Consisting of a Facilitator’s Guide and Participant Handout Packet, SBCC for Frontline Health Care Workers is designed for HCWs (e.g., nurses, community health extension workers, and HIV counselors) who are working on the frontlines with clients on a regular basis. Ideally the participants will have some experience or previous training in counseling and/or IPC. Through the use of this learning package HCWs will develop the skills to apply SBCC and IPC effectively to their work and deliver higher quality care to clients. The goal is also to increase the understanding among health care organizations of the following:

  • SBCC’s role and how to apply it in their work
  • IPC and how to use the skills within the context of their work
  • How to apply communication skills to client interactions, advocacy, and social mobilization in their work
