Current social and behavior change (SBC) measures for family planning (FP), maternal, newborn and child health, nutrition, and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in Niger and Burkina Faso are extremely limited and mostly concentrated on output measures and individual health outcomes. Governments, donors, SBC implementing partners, and other stakeholders must consider expanding the use of SBC indicators, particularly those related to program reach and intermediary outcomes, to narrow programming focus, monitor progress, and determine jprogram effectiveness and impacts.
