Exploring the Future of SBCC Interventions

Small doable actions (SDAs) - or behaviors practical for a behavior change intervention’s target population to adopt and consistently perform in resource-constrained settings - have been a critical tool for more than 20 years. The panelists will discuss SBCC interventions reliant on SDAs, including in WASH, family planning and malaria, as well as their methodological approaches to these sectors and lessons learned, with a focus on how the SDA approach can be applied to future SBCC interventions.
