West Africa Breakthrough ACTION is a regional initiative funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). It aims to increase coordination and effectiveness of social and behavior change (SBC) interventions in four countries: Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Niger, and Togo. WABA works in partnership with Amplify-FP, another USAID-funded project, to strengthen service delivery in these four countries. These investments provide an entry point for Breakthrough RESEARCH to explore the SBC programmatic landscape within the region and identify and document the effectiveness of SBC approaches.

Breakthrough RESEARCH’s suite of research activities in francophone West Africa aims to build the evidence base on the extent to which various approaches address behavioral determinants and improve family planning and reproductive health outcomes. Through this work, Breakthrough RESEARCH is creating a body of knowledge on SBC.
