The review specifically examined studies or programmes where one or more SBCC approaches were utilised in any programme that integrated across two or more health conditions across the reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH) continuum of care in low- or middle-income countries (LMICs). The review was developed with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) project, which is based at the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP), and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) with funding from the RMNCH Trust Fund on behalf of the United Nations Commission on Life Saving Commodities for Women and Children (UNCoLSC).</p> <div class="field button"><a href="http://healthcommcapacity.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Integrated-SBCC-Programs-Review-TOC.pdf" target="_blank">Click here for the 73-page review in PDF format.</a></div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://comminit.com/global/files/imagecache/thumbnail/title454689283.png" alt="" title="Social and Behavior Change Communication in Integrated Health Programs: A Scoping and Rapid Review" class="imagecache imagecache-thumbnail imagecache-default imagecache-thumbnail_default"/> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-contact-user-ref"> <div class="field-label">Contacts (user reference):&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Health Communic... </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-source-text"> <div class="field-label">Source:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="https://healthcommcapacity.org/hc3resources/social-behavior-change-communication-integrated-health-programs-scoping-rapid-review/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">HC3 website</a>, July 20 2017. <em>Image credit:</em> Centre for Communication and Change-India (CCC-I)</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://comminit.com/global/content/social-and-behavior-change-communication-integrated-health-programs-scoping-and-rapid-re" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://comminit.com/global/content/social-and-behavior-change-communication-integrated-health-programs-scoping-and-rapid-re#comments Global Strategic Thinking Academic Institutions Digital Bilaterals Person-to-Person Children Interpersonal Phone/Mobile Marketing Print Radio Television SDG 3: Good Health NGOs Health HIV AIDS Immunisation and Vaccines Malaria and Dengue United Nations Reproductive Health Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for Communication Programs UNICEF USAID Global Health Thu, 20 Jul 2017 18:40:26 +0000 Health Communication Capacity Collaborative 9494873 at http://comminit.com Understanding the Linkages between Social Safety Nets and Childhood Violence: A Review of the Evidence from Low- and Middle-income Countries http://comminit.com/global/content/understanding-linkages-between-social-safety-nets-and-childhood-violence-review-evidence <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-author"> <div class="field-label">Author:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Amber Peterman </div> <div class="field-item even"> Anastasia (Naomi) Neijhoft </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Sarah Cook </div> <div class="field-item even"> Tia M.

The handbook builds on existing guidelines, working procedures, and practices established in humanitarian action in volatile environments and for the benefit of victims of armed conflicts, other situations of violence, natural disasters, pandemics, and other humanitarian emergencies. It seeks to help humanitarian organisations comply with personal data protection standards by raising awareness and providing specific guidance on the interpretation of data protection principles in the context of humanitarian action, particularly when new technologies are employed.</p> <div class="field button"><a href="https://shop.icrc.org/handbook-on-data-protection-in-humanitarian-action.html?___store=default" target="_blank">Click here in order to access the 164-page resource in PDF format.</a></div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher"> <div class="field-label">Publisher:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/global/node/6055">International Commitee of the Red Cross (ICRC)</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Number of Pages:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>164</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-contact-user-ref"> <div class="field-label">Contacts (user reference):&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> International C... </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-source-text"> <div class="field-label">Source:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://c4dnetwork.apps-1and1.net/c4d-network-twitter-trawl-10-16-july-2017/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">C4D Network Twitter Trawl: 10 – 16 July 2017</a>. <em>Image caption/credit:</em> "Pristina, Kosovo.
