Project Integration Adviser, Bangladesh Center for Communications Programs (BCCP)
Mr. Shafiqur Rahman is a seasoned behavior change communications (BCC) expert, with over 30 years of progressively senior level experience in conceptualizing, designing, implementing, coordinating and monitoring of strategic communication, community mobilization and SBCC capacity building interventions for international and national development agencies in Bangladesh. Presently working with Bangladesh Center for Communications Programs, Mr. Rahman has been responsible for strategic planning and guidance to project teams, GoB level TA and NGO partners in the fields of public health, education and good governance, with special expertise in family planning/reproductive health and other programs targeting women, girls and youth.
Bangladesh has the highest rate of child marriage in Asia. Early marriage leads to a poorer quality of life for girls. It is detrimental to their agency and ability to obtain or continue education. So, in order to improve young couples’ quality of life and encourage them to make informed decisions, the Bangladesh Center for Communication Programs (BCCP) collaborated with the Directorate General of Family Planning to introduce a national Premarital Counseling (PMC) Guidebook.
