Breakthrough RESEARCH, with input from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and cross-sectoral implementing partners, developed research and learning agendas (RLAs) to strengthen two important areas of social and behavior change (SBC) programming: integrated SBC programming and provider behavior change (PBC).
The RLAs identify and document:
Gaps in existing evidence on integrated SBC/PBC programming.
Priority research and learning questions and the consensus-driven process used to derive them.
Roles of key stakeholders for putting the research and learning agendas into action.
These research spotlights apply the research questions to two current SBC projects: USAID Tulonge Afya’s NAWEZA Platform (an integrated SBC project) and Beyond Bias (a PBC project).
Through the research spotlights, we share key highlights from the projects to:
Demonstrate how priority RLA questions are being answered to improve SBC programming.
Share tools and resources for other program implementation and research partners.
Raise the visibility of current innovative SBC work.
