Provider Behavior Ecosystem Map

The Provider Behavior Ecosystem Map is a thinking tool to help those working in family planning and reproductive health:

  • Understand and consider diverse factors that influence facility-based provider behavior
  • Understand how those factors interact with one another in a system
  • Think more holistically about provider behavior change (PBC)
  • Design, implement, and evaluate more supportive, effective PBC initiatives

The Ecosystem Map presents healthcare providers as people whose behavior is influenced by many factors at multiple levels of a system. It emphasizes the need for systemic thinking and supportive action when designing and implementing PBC programming. Using the ecosystem map is a first step in the design—or adjustment—of supportive provider behavior change initiatives.

The Provider Behavior Ecosystem Map is available in both English and French. In addition, a new instructional video was developed in English and French to provide an overview of the tool and how it can and has been used.
