What is SBC Learning Central?

Breakthrough ACTION developed SBC Learning Central to provide public health professionals with foundational knowledge and skills to incorporate new social and behavior change (SBC) methodologies into their work. The online courses and toolkits include courses developed by Breakthrough ACTION and by Breakthrough RESEARCH and aim to increase SBC knowledge across a variety of health topics. Our goal is to help institutionalize SBC approaches and create a critical mass of skilled SBC practitioners and supportive decision makers worldwide. With an intentional focus on francophone West Africa, most courses and toolkits are offered in French and English. 

SBC Learning Central offers self-paced online courses and toolkits to: 

  • Provide useful, timely, and convenient opportunities for SBC continuing education. 
  • Serve as a practical resource for increasing SBC knowledge in novice learners and seasoned professionals alike. 
  • Present new content on how to apply SBC to key public health topics, including sexual and reproductive health, malaria, nutrition, and emergency outbreaks, such as COVID-19.
