SPRING/Sierra Leone created of a set of counselling cards to address key complementary feeding and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) behaviors for the Sierra Leonean context. In May-June 2016, SPRING used Trials of Improved Practices (TIPs), a qualitative research methodology, to allow household members in the Tonkolili District of Sierra Leone to select improved WASH and nutrition behaviors to try using in their households. These counselling cards are a direct output of this methodology, incorporating the most acceptable behaviors surrounding key messages on priority topics related to complementary feeding and WASH. SPRING provided this set of 13 counselling cards to our implementing partner HKI/Sierra Leone, who provides supportive supervision to ensure appropriate use of the cards and effective caregiver counselling.
