Through a grant awarded under Advancing Partners & Communities (APC), the Foundation for the NIH supports a population level behavior change (PLBC) research program. This research program intends to provide the scientific evidence base needed to strengthen the development and implementation of programs and policies that will promote behavioral changes leading to a reduction in child mortality. The PLBC program also aims to support improvements in healthy growth and the achievement of developmental milestones in children living in resource-constrained low- and middle-income countries.
