The aim of this review is to understand the nature and scope of social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) in integrated health programmes, as well as to examine the associated knowledge, attitudinal, behavioural, and health outcomes. The review specifically examined studies or programmes where one or more SBCC approaches were utilised in any programme that integrated across two or more health conditions across the reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH) continuum of care in low- or middle-income countries (LMICs). The review was developed with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) project, which is based at the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP), and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) with funding from the RMNCH Trust Fund on behalf of the United Nations Commission on Life Saving Commodities for Women and Children (UNCoLSC).
