This is a skill shot—or short course—for program managers, donor organizations, and family planning/reproductive health (FP/RH) practitioners to learn how social and behavior change (SBC) interventions can guide and amplify the effectiveness of FP/RH. The course is structured around the three steps of the SBC Flow Chart developed by Breakthrough ACTION: (1) Define, (2) Design and Test, and (3) Apply. With clear examples and short exercises, this course illustrates the importance of strategically designing SBC programs for FP/RH, including monitoring and evaluation. Allowing for pauses to complete three short exercises, this course is two hours long.
