The research was part of a project aimed at improving hygiene and sanitation related behavior of residents of Union Council Nahaqi, a rural area of Peshawar. The project consisted of a pre-intervention survey, followed by a structure behavior change communication program for three months, and an end-line survey. The communication program consisted of faith-based motivational and educational material and key health messages.

All the domains of hygiene and sanitation showed statistically significant improvement. The research findings concluded that a behavior change communication based on community needs, level of their understanding, beliefs and sociocultural norms is effective in bringing about behavior change.
