Social and Behaviour Change Interventions for Promoting Newborn Care

Social and Behaviour Change Interventions for Promoting Newborn Care

Based on the findings of an evidence review conducted under Call to Action by Population Council, USAID and UNICEF, the policy brief showcases social and behaviour change (SBC) interventions to promote newborn care. These interventions include: o Use of women's groups for disseminating health messages among women in the community through group meetings and interpersonal communication o Home based newborn care and routine home visits by health volunteers or health workers and Dais during antenatal and postnatal period o Training of community health workers on issues related to maternal, neonatal and child health o Forming village or community health committees to increase the sense of ownership of the intervention programme and health care facility o Training of nurses and doctors of health facility The evidence review indicates that in spite of a weak health system either in terms of poorly trained human resources, lack of adequate infrastructure or the limited supply of medicines, these simpler approaches or interventions at the family and community levels lead to improved health behaviours and thus reduced neonatal mortality.

The health workers while counselling the adolescent girls must keep in mind that: o Menstruation is a sensitive subject and girls may not open up on their own and their families may not approve of discussions on menstruation. Therefore, the health workers should create awareness among families and communities on the subject before discussing it with girls. o To understand adolescent girls and their problems, health workers should be sympathetic to them o While discussing adolescent views, problems and reactions on the subject the health workers should remain unbiased o Health workers should be sensitive to adolescent girls and their views o They should maintain confidentiality o They should create a supportive environment for discussion, actively listen to adolescents and encourage them to ask questions and clarify doubts Suggested Audience: Health workers

The module discusses one-way and two-way communication. It also describes the communication cycle and its components including sender, receiver, message, medium and feedback. Effective communication is an important part of behaviour change communication. It helps in winning people's trust and is useful in discussing even personal and sensitive issues. Similarly active listening also helps in behaviour change. Active listening helps in knowing a person and gathering vital information about him/her and his/her family and community. It further facilitates identification and understanding of a person's needs, problems and potential challenges to behaviour change. While listening to the person, it is also important to ask questions to gather relevant information about him/her. Asking questions is also an art. A health worker should use open ended questions while communicating with a person. Additionally, questions should be worded in simple language. The health worker should avoid asking many questions at a time and the person must be given sufficient time to answer the questions. Suggested Audience: Health workers

The Post Switch brochure informs the medical practitioner that the SWITCH from trivalent to bivalent oral polio vaccine in India took place on 25th April 2016 and all tOPV vaccines have been safely discarded.

This will be validated by switch monitors in both public and private sectors. Thereafter, on the National Validation Day, i.e., 9th May 2016 the country will be declared tOPV free. The brochure lists steps to be followed after the Switch. o Stop using tOPV and Start using bOPV. o If you have tOPV stock after the SWITCH date, ensure that you remove the tOPV stock from your clinic, put the tOPV stock in a package and mark it clearly as biowaste. o Ensure that you return this excess tOPV stock to the District Health Officer/ Chief Medical Officer for disposal. o Check that your clinic does not have any tOPV stock remaining.

Race to Good Health

Race to Good Health

Synopses: The video depicts the importance of handwashing to ensure a healthy and bright future of children. It showcases the successful initiatives taken to educate children on benefits and steps of handwashing and provide low cost handwashing infrastructure in schools of Maharashtra. Fostering group handwashing practices, creation of low-cost, durable and child-friendly mass handwashing stations and mobilising SMC and community members to support handwashing initiatives have been depicted as potent strategies to promote handwashing among children. The video also shows that under the Government’s Swachh Bharat Swachh Vidyalaya campaign provision of adequate handwashing and sanitation facilities in the school is necessary.

ODEP Advocacy Maharahtra Film (Marathi)

ODEP Advocacy Maharahtra Film (Marathi)

Synopses: Through this video, implementation of Open Defecation Elimination Campaign in Rural Maharashtra has been depicted. This campaign is being implemented by Water Supply and Sanitation Department, Government of Maharashtra with the support of UNICEF and PRIMOVE. Open Defecation Elimination Plan (ODEP) is a community-led process to develop a plan to make the village open defecation free (ODF). The plan preparation requires community consultation for identification of household toilets to be constructed or repaired and improvement of institutional sanitation facilities in schools and anganwadi centres. It also involves laying down roles and responsibilities of stakeholders. Through this process an actionable plan emerges to make the village ODF and this plan is termed as ODEP. This approach is different from PRA and CLTS because it not only seeks to trigger and motivate the community but also encompasses aggregating the demand and exploring appropriate technical options with a plan of supply chain, developing a community based monitoring system and ensuring suitability. The main goal of the campaign is to make Maharashtra open defecation free by October 2, 2019. Suggested Audience: Government Officials at all levels; PRI members
