WASH behavior change resources

Meley Woldeghebriel

USAID is developing a Virtual Behavior Change Institute that will serve as a “Resource Center” for strengthening the capacity of USAID Missions, implementing partners and other in-country actors to design, implement and evaluate behavior change programming for key WASH behaviors such as safe drinking water management and treatment, handwashing with soap, disposal of infant feces, etc.

We are looking for the top 10 resources (can be videos, guidance documents, webinars, trainings, etc.) on behavior change or WASH behavior change that we should include in the institute. Any suggestions?


Hi Meley, have you now identified the top 10 resources or are you still looking? Harriette @RedR

I set up something similar for the SuSanA discussion forum which I called "Top-5" key documents on behavior change (and important links). See here:

Hope this helps. I am interested to know which ones you choose in the end. Can you give feedback here or on the SuSanA discussion forum? Thanks.

By the wa,y key documents for other topics are available from this page:

Thank you Elisabeth for your comment. Your SuSanA post is very similar to what we are looking for in behavior change. We want the virtual institute to be accessed and widely shared by our WASH colleagues so we will absolutely keep you in the loop. If you can share your e-mail with me, I can ensure that you will be a part of our updates. Thanks again.
