This webcast event explored successes, challenges and promising approaches of the integration of social and behavior change (SBC) along the service delivery continuum to improve health outcomes. Following the presentation of a new overarching model developed by HC3 – the Circle of Care – a panel discussion focused on grounded strategies which have been used to effectively integrate SBC to improve service-related outcomes across a range of health areas.
In-person attendees were invited to problem-solve and brainstorm around specific challenges and solutions through interactive break-out sessions related to service communication in their technical health area of expertise, including family planning, HIV/AIDS, malaria and maternal, newborn and child health.
This was the final event in HC3’s three-part series on catalyzing SBC. The first event highlighted the role of social and behavior change communication (SBCC) in emergencies, while the second explored strengthening SBC capacity at the national level to improve health outcomes.
