Breakthrough-RESEARCH: The purpose of the Breakthrough-RESEARCH project is to increase the practice of priority health behaviors and enabling social norms, including gender norms, for improved health and development outcomes, with an emphasis on FP/RH, HIV/AIDS, MNCH, and malaria. This purpose will be achieved through the integration of proven social and behavior change (SBC) interventions in health and development programs worldwide. Breakthrough-RESEARCH will closely coordinate with its sister project, Breakthrough-ACTION (RFA-OAA-17-000002), to achieve this shared purpose. Specifically: Breakthrough-RESEARCH will work to disseminate and advance research around SBC technical areas and interventions in which existing evidence is considered insufficient, while Breakthrough-ACTION will work to increase coverage of, and innovate based on, investments in SBC programming that already have significant evidence. Breakthrough-RESEARCH is envisioned as a global leader in actionable SBC research that will directly influence health and development programming within the life of the project. To be successful, the project must capitalize on previous investments and current efforts in SBC research and evaluation within and outside of USAID and focus on producing, packaging, and disseminating research that may be utilized by SBC implementers in their work. In addition to conducting and disseminating the social science research that has traditionally been the mainstay of USAID's investments in SBC, Breakthrough-RESEARCH may also develop, test, or disseminate innovative or under-utilized research, monitoring, and evaluation approaches for SBC conducted by others that support tactical, real-time application of data in programmatic decision-making.
