Overview

This helpdesk provides a rapid analysis on the existing evidence related to effective behaviour change interventions. It has a particular focus on where interventions are related to hygiene and sanitation, nutrition, gender based violence, indoor air pollution, family planning adoption, unsafe sex, motor vehicle driving. The geographic focus is Malawi, but where necessary it draws on evidence from the wider sub-Saharan Africa region and other low income contexts. Where possible it presents information on both the nature of interventions, and evidence based factors that contribute to intervention success/failure.
