The shared strategic objective of the two BREAKTHROUGH projects is increased integration of proven social and behavior change (SBC) interventions in health and development programs, particularly health service delivery platforms. Within the health sector, the projects will maintain a substantive focus on family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH); HIV/AIDS; malaria; and maternal, neonatal, and child health (MNCH), with attention to emerging pandemic threats and other infectious diseases as needed. While focused primarily on health, the projects may address SBC needs in other sectors, with particular attention to areas of potential complementarity such as environmental conservation, agriculture, food security, and nutrition.
