Effectiveness of Social and Behavior Change Communications (SBCC) to Improve Infant and Young Child Feeding Practices in Ethiopia

Resource type

Appropriate infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices are critical for optimal child growth and development. Despite some progress, the implementation of IYCF practices is still sub-optimal in Ethiopia. A key component of a strong, synergistic approach for improving the health and nutritional wellbeing of children is the use of social and behavior change communication (SBCC) interventions. The purpose of this review was to identify the types of SBCC approaches that are used in Ethiopia and to assess their effectiveness to improve IYCF practices.
