Strengthening Social and Behavior Change Measurement in the RISE II Program
In RISE II, the Resilience Food Security Activity partners use a variety of social and behavior change (SBC) approaches, including community mobilization, interpersonal communication through peer group activities, and mass media, to address priority health behaviors.
Breakthrough RESEARCH conducted a mapping of family planning (FP); maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH); nutrition; and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) indicators in Niger and Burkina Faso to assess the availability of SBC-related data, including standardized indicators that could inform RISE II partner programs and support the identification and selection of standardized SBC indicators for routine programmatic data collection.
It was found that current SBC measures related to FP, MNCH, nutrition, and WASH in Niger and Burkina Faso are extremely limited and are mostly concentrated at output-level measures and individual health outcomes.
