Webinar—Evaluation of Integrated SBC in Nigeria Behavioral Sentinel Surveillance Survey: MNCH+N baseline results
In 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.
This presentation describes the BSS objectives and methods and highlights key BSS baseline survey findings across health areas. New ideational metrics were reviewed that were collected for pregnancy and childbirth, breastfeeding, vaccination, and childhood illnesses. The presenters discuss how these metrics were developed and adapted for the northwestern Nigerian context. Breakthrough ACTION presented key program design and the programmatic implications of the research.
