Emergencies frequently disrupt people’s ability to practice life-protecting behaviours, such as exclusive breastfeeding (preventing malnutrition) or using oral rehydration salts (treating diarrhoea). Understanding what exactly prevents people from practicing these life-saving behaviours and addressing the main barriers must be an integral part of any emergency response. This site therefore provides the most useful resources on behaviour change in emergencies. Let us know please if you think that an important tool or publication is missing.
