In northwestern Ethiopia, CARE initiated a five-year child survival project in the Farta district of Amhara Region.

While similar to other child survival projects in terms of education, the Farta Child Survival Project involved religious leaders and community members to improve health outcomes. As a result, the projects results exceeded targets, including exclusive breastfeeding, environmental hygiene, and health behaviors.

This analysis reviews the Farta Child Survival project to discern which factors in implementation encouraged effective behavioral change through the application of Social Cognitive Theory. Social Cognitive Theory hypothesizes that cognition plays an important role in an individuals ability to construct reality, self-regulate, understand information, and perform behaviors.

The confluence of the various social influences described in Social Cognitive Theory demonstrates why the Farta Child Survival Project was a success.
