The barrier analysis will focus on identifying factors that are preventing communities from adopting a specific behavior, as well as enablers of the behavior. The study will assess existing behaviors and practices concerning hand washing with soap at critical times (i.e. after visiting the toilet, and or after handling baby stool/cleaning baby’s bottom, before eating and/or serving food etc and record barriers inhibiting the adoption of appropriate sanitation practice including proper disposal of fecal matter.
Thus, the purpose of the barrier analysis (BA) is to identify the existing practices and barriers relating to specific behaviours in order to determine what social behavioral change and communication strategies can be employed to ensure these practices are adopted. The behaviors to be studied are:
The Barrier Analysis will be conducted in Yobe and Borno States covering the LGAs of Yunusari and Geidam in the Yobe and LGAs of Gubio and Mobbar in Borno. These locations have been chosen because AAH is already implementing programs in these areas supporting WASH interventions specifically hygiene promotions and safe water provisions and accessibility. Thus conducting the BA study in the same locations would facilitate programme learning and ensure that findings from the study would inform current WASH intervention as well as subsequent social behavioral change strategies.
The Analysis will also help strengthen participants’ abilities to conduct barrier Analysis through formative research. Participants will gain new insights into the use of the Barrier Analysis tools and study approach in general. Since the project is being implemented by AAH in the two states, the outcome from the Barrier Analysis studies will help project staff and government refine those activities to address the key barriers and motivators to behavior change.
