The Role of SBC Interventions in the Increase in TB Notification in Nigeria

This document describes SBC interventions identified as best practices in the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control Programme (NTBLCP)’s “Compendium of Best Practices 2018-2021”.  

The USAID Breakthrough ACTION Nigeria (BA-N) project, the NTBLCP and partners collaborated to develop the first national unified TB Social and Behavior Change (SBC) campaign– “Check Am O!”. The campaign was designed to be relatable to the priority audience of peri-urban dwellers based on an intensive human-centered design approach encouraging anyone with a cough lasting more than 2 weeks to seek TB testing and for their friends, family and associates to support them to do so.
