About the SBCC Resource Bank

Couple Communicating

The USAID/Growth through Nutrition SBCC Resource Bank is a collection of nearly 60 print, video, audio and multi-media materials. These materials support Thematic Area: IR2. Promoting Optimal Nutrition, WASH, and Agriculture Behaviors. The materials are designed to improve nutrition-sensitive and nutrition-specific behaviors in rural smallholder farming communities and households in the Amhara, Oromia, SNNP and Tigray regions of Ethiopia.  The materials also include training packages and qualitative research reports that support improved nutrition SBCC programs.

The SBCC Resource Bank provides program managers and program implementers quick access to evidence-based SBCC materials that can help their programs improve nutrition outcomes for pregnant women, breastfeeding women, adolescent girls, infants and young children.

All of the resources in this SBCC Resource Bank are available for free and can be downloaded and used in your program. The sale of the images, content or materials in the SBCC Resource Bank is prohibited.
