Developing a Social and Behavior Change Research Agenda

Breakthrough RESEARCH, with input from USAID and implementing partners, has developed research and learning agendas for two important areas of social and behavior change (SBC) programming: the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of health care providers with their clients and the integration of multiple health or development issues within a single SBC program.

The research and learning agendas lay out a set of questions designed to help discover what is needed to better understand factors that influence providers’ behaviors and integrating SBC programming. Answers to these questions can help improve the work of health care providers (e.g., public, private, and community) and help integrated programming become more effective in order to have a stronger impact on behavior change.

See the atttached suite of materials Breakthrough RESEARCH has developed for more information on the research and learning agendas and how to play a role in implementing them.
