Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) is a framework that uses the strategies of advocacy, behaviour change communication (BCC) and community mobilization to influence both individual and societal change.

Each year, a lot of resources are spent trying to modify human behaviour. While some intervention strategies are successful, many fall short of their intended goals. Research shows that those interventions most likely to achieve desired outcomes are based on a clear understanding of the targeted health behaviours and the environmental context in which they occur. Social and Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) has been successfully used by various health promotion programs to improve the well-being of target populations. It is a systematic and well-planned process that motivate people to adopt and sustain health promoting behaviours and lifestyles.

Course objectives

To build the capacity of trainees for improving health outcomes through targeted communication strategies aimed at positive behaviour change among key populations.

Target group

Programme staff of humanitarian and development agencies including project managers, officers and assistants.
