Does your organization want to start Social Behavior Change activities but doesn’t know how to do it? Do you want to improve the quality or reach of your SBC programs? Need help doing it?

Feel free to get in touch with the Tech RRT – we have recently expanded our scope! This means we are now able to provide technical support to individual agencies. National or International organizations as well as health ministries can request our support. All costs for this support are covered by the Tech RRT grant, thanks to USAID/OFDA!

Examples of the kind of activities that the Tech RRT SBC Adviser can support
- Lead SBC assessments, such as Barrier analysis, to better understand the communities’ current practices for specific nutrition, sanitation and hygiene behaviors
- Assess capacity building needs of staff members on SBC
- Facilitate trainings, Training of Trainers (TOTs) or orientation sessions
- Work with the organization’s teams to develop and integrate activities for SBC into programs
- Monitor and do supportive supervision visits of SBC activities and provide recommendations or corrective actions to improve program quality
- Design or adapt M&E tools and indicators for SBC programs
- Advise on integration of SBC with other sectors’ programs, i.e. WASH, Food Security and Livelihoods, Child Protection, Health
- Lead the development of proposals and budgets for SBC activities in nutrition and WASH responses
- Support to design of an SBC strategy or response plan for the organization

In addition to SBC, our areas of technical expertise include surveys and assessments, IYCF/IYCF-E (Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies) and CMAM (Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition). If you are working for an organization who wants to improve the quality and reach of your nutrition response in any of these areas, please request an advisor!

If you want to request an advisor but don’t think your organization can host them (this does have some responsibilities), we can check to see if one of our consortium members (International Medical Corps, Save the Children, Action Against Hunger) can help out – they are often happy to host.

Want to know more about how it works, please feel free to get in touch: TechRRT@InternationalMedicalCorps.org
