Join Breakthrough RESEARCH for its third interactive legacy and learning event on 21 March at 9 am EST!


Breakthrough RESEARCH, USAID’s flagship social and behavior change (SBC) research and evaluation project to drive the generation, packaging, and use of innovative SBC research to inform programming, invites you to the third of four interactive legacy and learning events. This event in the series on SBC and the enabling environment for family planning highlights evidence, insights, and learnings over the life of the project to understand and foster a supportive enabling environment for family planning through SBC approaches. SBC approaches can best support family planning programs to achieve their goals when the context of the enabling environment is clearly defined and measured, better elucidating the pathways by which behavioral determinants influence health outcomes.
During this webinar we will:

  • Explore key SBC insights from Breakthrough RESEARCH.
  • Learn about the state-of-the-art evidence Breakthrough RESEARCH has generated.
  • Discuss what’s needed next to continue to build the evidence base for SBC and the enabling environment for family planning.



Joignez-vous à Breakthrough RESEARCH pour son troisième événement interactif d'héritage et d'apprentissage, le 21 mars à 14 h GMT !


Breakthrough RESEARCH, le projet phare de l'USAID en matière de recherche et d'évaluation sur le changement social et comportemental (CSC), qui vise à encourager la génération, la présentation et l'utilisation de recherches innovantes sur le CSC afin de renseigner les programmes, vous invite à participer au troisième des quatre événements interactifs d'héritage et d'apprentissage. Cet évènement de la série sur le CSC et un environnement favorable à la planification familiale met en évidence les preuves, les idées et les apprentissages pendant la vie du projet pour comprendre et favoriser l’avènement d’un environnement favorable à la planification familiale par le biais d'approches CSC. Les approches CSC peuvent mieux soutenir les programmes de planification familiale pour atteindre leurs objectifs lorsque le contexte de l'environnement favorable est clairement défini et mesuré, ce qui permet de mieux élucider les voies par lesquelles les déterminants comportementaux influencent les résultats de santé.

Au cours de ce webinaire, nous allons :

  • Explorer les idées clés de Breakthrough RESEARCH en CSC.
  • Découvrir les preuves de pointe que Breakthrough RESEARCH a généré.
  • Discuter de ce qui est nécessaire pour continuer à construire la base de données probantes pour le CSC et l'environnement favorable à la planification familiale.
