Health communications is a critical factor in all emergency response operations. The communication of clear, accurate and timely information saves lives and impacts response efforts. Social Behavioral Change Communication (SBCC) ensures this information is disseminated to those affected, while maintaining trust and reassurance in the message. This empowers a community and country to best protect themselves during the crisis. The positive results of SBCC has been shown in numerous emergencies, including the Nepal earthquake, the Ebola outbreak, and the Zika outbreak. This breakout session will focus on the lessons learned and best practices in SBCC in emergency response
