SPRING: Developing Effective Messages for Better Nutrition and Hygiene in Tonkolili: The TIPS Method


SPRING/Sierra Leone used Trials of Improved Practices (TIPs) to select improved water, sanitation, and hygiene, and nutrition behaviors in consultation with household members. By focusing on what people do rather than what they know or believe, TIPs provides an in-depth understanding of families’ preferences and capabilities, and the barriers and enablers they encounter in trying new behaviors. This methodology engages household members in dialogue and involves them as partners in designing the interventions that work best in their lives to achieve positive health outcomes.
