SBCC for Emergency Preparedness I-Kit

SBCC Emergency Preparedness Implementation Kit

SBCC for Emergency Preparedness I-KitJohns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (JHCCP) developed toolkit that provides essential information and tools for responding to an outbreak using an SBCC approach. It presents a series of nine units, each accompanied by exercise worksheets to help link the SBCC theory to practice.


Beyond the Outbreak – Strategies for Post-Ebola Recovery

This toolkit is a resource for organizations and individuals involved in recovery efforts following an infectious disease outbreak, such as the Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in West Africa in 2014-2016. Its primary goal is to provide governments, donors, NGOs, and survivor groups with guidance and templates for responding to issues related to patient needs and health systems recovery after a major outbreak. Comprised of multiple resources, the toolkit includes best practices and lessons learned, tools and templates, and recovery-oriented research articles, as well as videos, technical briefs, and success stories presented as examples of the health systems recovery work conducted by the Ebola Transmission Prevention & Survivor Services (ETP&SS) programs in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone in 2016-2018. These programs were funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by the Advancing Partners & Communities Project through JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc.

The toolkit can be found here.
