In northwestern Nigeria, Breakthrough RESEARCH is evaluating the effectiveness of Breakthrough ACTION’S integrated versus malaria-only social and behavior change programming on priority malaria, family planning, and maternal, newborn, and child health plus nutrition (MNCH+N) outcomes.

A behavioral sentinel surveillance (BSS) baseline survey was conducted in September 2019, with a midline and endline survey planned. The BSS survey measures changes in key behaviors and ideations across malaria, family planning, and MNCH+N to inform Breakthrough ACTION’s program adaption and scale-up over the course of the project.

In this webinar, Breakthrough RESEARCH shared findings from its work in northwestern Nigeria related to care-seeking and treatment practices for diarrhea, fever, and acute respiratory infections among young children. Researchers presented new ideational metrics collected and discussed how these metrics are associated with care-seeking and treatment behaviors for sick children under 2 years old. Breakthrough ACTION presented key program design to address sick child care-seeking and treatment and the programmatic implications of the research.
