Breakthrough Research for Social and Behavior Change

Breakthrough RESEARCH

Breakthrough RESEARCH catalyzes social and behavior change by conducting state-of-the-art research and evaluation and promoting evidence-based solutions to improve health and development programs around the world. In partnership with a range of stakeholders, Breakthrough RESEARCH is identifying key evidence gaps and developing consensus-driven research agendas to guide priority investments in SBC research, programs, and policy. Using cutting-edge research and evaluation methods, Breakthrough RESEARCH is addressing key questions related to SBC programming such as “What works?” “How can it work best?” “How much does it cost?” “Is it cost-effective?” “How can it be replicated, scaled, and sustained locally?” Ultimately, the project will equip governments, implementing partners, service delivery organizations, and donors with the data and evidence they need to integrate proven and cost-effective social and behavior change approaches into their programs.

Breakthrough RESEARCH is a five-year cooperative agreement funded by the United States Agency for International Development. The consortium is led by the Population Council in partnership with Avenir Health, ideas42, Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown University, Population Reference Bureau, and Tulane University.
