Research, Monitoring and Evaluation for Integrated SBCC

Given their complex, varied and often dynamic nature, integrated SBCC programs require unique research, monitoring and evaluation approaches (RM&E). When designing RM&E components for an integrated program, take into consideration how specific SBCC program approaches address specific health topics, what needs to be measured to understand the linkages, the breadth of coverage, and proposed timelines for introducing topics. These considerations are relevant at every step of the RM&E process – from creating your logic models, to selecting indicators, choosing monitoring methods, and designing your evaluation framework and data collection tools.
