Integrating social and behavior change (SBC) along the service delivery continuum can improve health services and outcomes. Join us as we explore what has worked, the challenges we face, and promising approaches during the third and final event in the Catalyzing Social and Behavior Change Communication event series.
The series was organized by the CCP-led Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3), a five-year, global project funded by USAID designed to strengthen developing country capacity to implement state-of-the-art social and behavior change communication (SBCC) programs.
The event, to be held June 8, 2017, 8:30 am to 1:30 pm EDT at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC is open to service delivery and SBC professionals who wish to explore the role of social behavior change across the service delivery continuum.
Dr. Koki Agarwal, Director, Maternal and Child Survival Program, Jhpiego will provide opening remarks, and Lynn Van Lith, HC3 HIV/AIDS Team Lead will moderate a panel discussion on grounded strategies which have been used to effectively integrate SBC to improve service-related outcomes across a range of health areas. Panelists include: Erin Mielke, Reproductive Health Senior Technical Advisor, USAID, Elizabeth Arlotti-Parish, Technical Advisor, Sexual Reproductive Health Rights, Social Behavior Change, EngenderHealth, Dr. Mojisola Odeku, Chief of Party, NURHI2, Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs and Patrick Devos, Country Director, HC3 Mozambique.
After the panel discussion, guests will be invited to participate in problem-solving and brainstorming activities around specific challenges and solutions through interactive break-out sessions in their technical health area of expertise, including family planning, HIV/AIDS, malaria, and maternal, newborn and child health.
For those who’d like to follow the event online, a live webcast will be streamed.
