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.
