A new brief details how SHOPS Plus collected timely and actionable data to develop evidence-based social and behavior change programs in rural Nepal.

SHOPS Plus collected data from hundreds of women in four hill districts of Nepal with extremely poor reproductive and child health indicators in order to pinpoint barriers to healthy behavior adoption. The Nepal CRS Company, a local social marketing organization, used the findings as the foundation for district-specific social and behavior change programs focused on contraceptive access and choice, diarrhea treatment and prevention, antenatal care, and facility delivery.

Read the full brief to learn more about the research methods used and the district-specific programs designed as a result of the findings.
