The module aims to provide content appropriate to train eCBHFA volunteers and their community members on the elements of effective behaviour change.
The material should be used to train all eCBHFA volunteers as well as volunteers from any sector or response. The module can be taught in a training environment, in community meetings, during household visits, and one-on-one discussions with volunteers and community members anywhere in the community.
