Social and Behavior Change Communication for Emergency Preparedness Implementation Kit. Worksheets

USAID; Health Communication Capacity Collaborative, Eds.: The John Hopkins University, (2017)


This I-Kit provides essential information and tools for responding to an outbreak using an SBCC approach. It presents a series of nine units, each accompanied by exercise worksheets to help link the SBCC theory to practice. The worksheets in each section are typically followed by a completed example. The completed examples will likely include information about an emergency that, during an actual event, might not be immediately available. This was done to illustrate the full range of information to inform a strategic communication response.

Build back better in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction (Consultative version)

United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), (2017)
