Poster on use of gender scalesThis poster presents preliminary quantitative findings from a study in Tanzania on the effectiveness of radio programming addressing male gender norms in support of a community-based program that distributes contraceptives. The study explored the use of gender scales in predicting contraceptive use, including the Gender Equitable Men (GEM) Scale, and scales adapted from Demographic and Health Surveys: household decision-making, attitudes toward refusal of sex, and attitudes toward wife-beating. The potential programmatic implication is that, beyond human rights considerations, investments in promoting gender equity may contribute to increasing the use of contraception.

 Success Story Malaria Prevention Kenya thumbnailC-Change is working in Kenya with funding from the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) to assist districts in western Kenya with  combating malaria. This Success Story details work being done to provide training in social and behavior change communication so that community health workers are better equipped to help communities prevent and control malaria. These activities by C-Change have led to a reduction in malaria cases for children under 5 and pregnant women, an increase in use of insecticide-treated nets, and an increase in the number of pregnant women seeking intermittent preventive treatment (IPTp) to prevent malaria at health clinics.

SBCC Framework

The SBCC Framework guides the work that C-Change does and outlines our approach to SBCC:

  1. SBCC is an interactive, researched, and planned process that aims at changing social norms as well as individual behaviors. 
  2. It uses a Socio-Ecological Model to find an effective tipping point for change, either addressing knowledge, skills, and motivation needed; desired modification for social and gender norms; or what would constitute an enabling environment for change.
  3. It operates through three key strategies: advocacy, social mobilization, and behavior change communication

VMMC Communication Guide thumbnailC-Change assisted development of the Nyanza Communication Guide, which operationalized the Kenya MC communication Strategy. This is part of a larger effort in which C-Change worked with the Government of Kenya (GOK) and other partners through the national and the provincial communication sub-committees on VMMC to develop the Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) Communication Toolkit, available on C-Hub. The materials in the toolkit are designed to create and sustain demand for MC and reinforce that, while MC reduces risk for men, it does not prevent HIV and must be combined with other prevention behaviors to be effective. For the communication materials that comprise the Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) Communication Toolkit, visit C-Hub.
