Breakthrough ACTION is a five-year cooperative agreement funded by USAID to lead their SBC programming around the world. Breakthrough ACTION ignites collective action and encourages people to adopt healthier behaviors—from using modern contraceptive methods and sleeping under bed nets to being tested for HIV—by forging, testing, and scaling up new and hybrid approaches to social and behavior change (SBC). Breakthrough ACTION is a partnership led by Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) in collaboration with Save the Children, ThinkPlaceUS, ideas42, and Camber Collective with specialized support from the International Center for Research on Women and Viamo.
Rationale for this consultancy
Interest in using SBC along the service delivery continuum has greatly increased recently. However, many actors remain skeptical of SBC’s role due to a lack of evidence or a narrow conception of SBC. Other actors believe in the power of SBC but lack a clear vision for implementing SBC within service delivery contexts. Save the Children wished to engage a consultant to conduct a review of peer-reviewed and grey literature to illustrate the intersection between SBC for Family Planning (FP) service delivery and community health systems strengthening (HSS), highlighting the gaps and identifying areas of learning.
Proven expertise in research techniques, particularly conducting literature reviews and synthesizing large volumes of grey literature Experience working in SBC for FP, FP service delivery, Health System Strengthening and/or Community System Strengthening
