Project

Communication for Change (C-Change)

Under FHI 360 management, the Communication for Change project (C-Change) equipped organizations in Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean to break down barriers to social change using social and behavior change communication (SBCC). The project worked with national and local governments, nongovernmental organizations and regional networks to plan, implement and manage SBCC programs to address issues such as HIV, reproductive health and family planning, malaria control and prevention, gender equality, and civil society and democracy building. C-Change developed a range of evidence-based learning tools to aid organizations in mastering the process of implementing SBCC programs. C-Modules is the program’s core tool, while the SBCC Capacity Assessment Tool helps end users assess their SBCC knowledge. Taking training to a higher level, C-Change also partnered with academic institutions to develop the first graduate-level SBCC program in Africa at the University of Witwatersrand and worked with universities in Albania, Guatemala and Nigeria to improve SBCC education.

C-Change is currently active in the following countries: Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Namibia and Nigeria.
