Behavior Change Communication Solutions

ZMQ specializes in developing Behaviour Change Solutions. A research based consultative process of addressing knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) through identifying, analyzing, segmenting audiences and participants in programs by providing them with relevant information and motivation through well defined strategies, using an audience appropriate mix of interpersonal, group and mass-media channels, including participatory methods. Behavior change strategies tend to focus on the individual as a locus of change.

BCC strategy is woven into the overall solution, based on sound formative assessment which can influence community discussion, social norms, individuals and community behavior.
