Intentionally Incorporating the Social Determinants of Health into Social and Behavior Change Programming for Family Planning

Publication Year: 2022
Contributing Organisation: USAID
Authors: Breakthrough ACTION
Learning Themes: Global Health

The field of social and behavior change (SBC) recognizes that factors beyond the biomedical model of health affect health and well-being at individual, household, community, and societal levels. However, to date, SBC interventions in family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) have primarily focused on identifying and
shifting behaviors in individuals, groups, and communities; therefore, SBC programs too often overlook the root causes of health disparities related to FP/RH and how SBC approaches can and should be used to address them.
The purposes of this brief are to (1) synthesize what is known about addressing the social determinants of health (SDOH) inequities in FP/RH; (2) propose considerations for future SBC programming to address the SDOH
inequities in FP/RH based on the existing evidence; and (3) identify implementation research gaps that should be explored to support the use of SBC to address inequities in FP/RH that result from the SDOH.
