BC Determinant: Opportunity• Opportunity summarizes modifiable societal or structural level elements that are thought necessary to increase the likelihood that a person will be able to use a health product or service. These include awareness of methods and sources of supply and perceptions of social marketing brands and their attributes.
BC Determinant: Ability• Ability summarizes interpersonal level behavior change constructs such as social norms and perceptions of self-efficacy and affordability that assist or inhibit individuals to be able to act, given opportunity and motivation.
BC Determinant: Motivation• Motivation summarizes individual level behavior change constructs such as awareness of a health problem, its causes and severity. This awareness then results in an assessment of personal risk.
BCC Core Strategies: Education, Law & Marketing• Education can affect ability and motivation, but is not able to create opportunity – such as increasing the availability of health services -- for people to behave. Law is useful when opportunity and ability to behave are present, but motivation is absent and unlikely to be induced through marketing or education. Yet, legal interventions are considered inappropriate when less coercive interventions, like marketing, are effective. Marketing complements both law and education by its capacity to affect all three summary determinants of behavior change -- opportunity, ability and motivation – and by permitting targeted audiences to change behavior voluntarily.
