Social and Behavior Change for Insecticide-Treated Nets

This document provides implementers with the latest technical insights on how to do social and behavior change for nets. It covers strategy design for all types of net behaviors, such as net acquisition (purchasing and participation in net distribution programs), net use (seasonality, preferences, outdoor), net care; misuse, disposal and repurposing.  The guide also covers situational considerations, such as low-transmission settings, pyrethroid resistance and next-generation nets, and nets in combination with indoor residual spraying.

Based on 10+ years of research, the guide gives SBC program planners evidence-based tools and guidance that may help SBC programs reinvigorate their approach and optimize net use, longevity and access.
