COVID-19 Behaviour Change Framework
The RCCE Collective Service offers and coordinated services and support to enhance standardise approaches to the systematic collection, analysis and use of socio-behavioural evidence to consistently feed into the response to COVID-19 and beyond. The development of the COVID-19 behaviour change framework is a critical step in supporting the streamlining of data collection processes and the generation of real-time socio-behavioural analysis: it includes socio-behavioural variables that have been identified as essential for slowing COVID-19 transmission or measuring the impacts of COVID-19 transmission on communities. The framework is underpinned by a set of core indicators and a question bank which seeks to enhance the measuring of relevant socio-behavioural and structural factors.
The framework has been developed through a consultative process with RCCE practitioners at global, regional, and national levels and builds on existing best practice. The global behaviour change framework is not designed to measure the delivery of RCCE activities within the strategy. Rather, it focuses on helping RCCE stakeholders to understand communities’ capacities, knowledge, practices, behaviours, and perceptions and to use this information to inform strategic and operational decision-making to put people at the centre of the response.
