Please join Breakthrough RESEARCH and partners for a presentation and dialogue on developing and socializing two research and learning agendas to help enhance provider behavior change and integrated social and behavior change (SBC) programming.
Tremendous strides have been made in SBC programming to improve health outcomes among populations; yet knowledge gaps remain across health and development sectors. Breakthrough RESEARCH, with input from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implementing partners, has developed research and learning agendas (RLAs) to inform two important areas of SBC programming: (1) improving the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of health care providers toward their clients and (2) enhancing the integration of multiple health or development issues under the same SBC program.
Additionally, Breakthrough RESEARCH in collaboration with FHI 360 and Pathfinder International has developed two “Research Spotlights” highlighting implementing partners’ research activities related to the priority questions identified in the RLAs. The webinar will briefly describe the RLAs and take the audience through the process of developing the Research Spotlights and solicit feedback to enhance the uptake and use of these products.

To facilitate a more streamlined presentation and discussion, please view this slidedeck (http://breakthroughactionandresearch.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/BR_RLA_Overview.pdf) describing the process of developing the RLAs for integrated SBC programming and provider behavior change programming. This process will not be covered in detail during the webinar.
