Why we do, what we do
Social behavioral change campaigns have the power to positively transform the lives of countless Africans. However, we noticed that most SBC interventions have a short lifespan and it was important to create a skilled community, a reference point(knowledge hub) to support sustainability as well as scalability of SBC innovations.
We decided to create AS-SBC – as a community for social and behavior change professionals to learn, share and harness existing skills and knowledge; to establish a self-sustaining hub for social and behavior change innovations beyond donor and/or project funding.
Looking to inspire positive change
Fostering networking and collaboration among social and behavior change (SBC) professionals.
Sharing best practices, experiences and learnings among members.
Promote standards of practice for: SBC design, implementation, as well as monitoring and evaluation.
Mentoring and strengthening the capacity of young SBC professionals.
SERVICES WE OFFER
AS-SBC provides technical expertise and a wealth of knowledge to help in the development of social behavior change approaches, programs and communications to address health and development issues.
One of our biggest success stories is “TOSEMBERERA - KEEP A DISTANCE” campaign – a brain child of our Next Big Thing Campaign Design and Innovation. Approved and adopted by the Ugandan Ministry of Health as the national COVID-19 communication campaign; it has helped encourage Ugandans to adopt and sustain desired behaviors and practices that help prevention and manage COVID-19 pandemic. This campaign has also been adopted and adapted by: WHO, UNICEF and Water AID amongst others.
