MAGENTA is a women-led social and behaviour change (SBC) agency that specialises in understanding human decision-making processes to design and deliver complex research and implementation programmes in development, fragile and conflict-affected environments. We use a multidisciplinary behavioural science approach to understand the determinants of practices through an understanding of the media landscape, and how brands and content producers engage audiences - which is a highly influential factor in shaping perceptions and social norms. MAGENTA brings together a team of experts with collective experience of over 25 years in developing evidence-based SBC strategies and delivering impactful communications. Based and registered in Amman, Jordan and operating across the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean, MAGENTA has delivered over 100 projects these 5 past years. We design, develop and deliver bold strategies based on robust behavioural models, local insights and rigorous data, creating enabling environments that allow people to thrive. We work with our partners to design impact-driven communications campaigns, tailoring our behavioural change solutions to the specific challenge and context that they confront.

Our purpose is to contribute to sustainable development in the areas of health, education, and gender through high - quality research in marketing and communication.

MEK Research Center in Marketing & Development seeks to develop, support and promote research using marketing and communication for development perspectives, to study and understand social issues related to health, education and gender that limit sustainable development and that foster social inequities and inequalities.By 2032 we want to become a national and international benchmark in research in marketing and communication for sustainable development of high quality and impact, connecting through our activities, including our research, the most underserved populations with those with the capacity to generate structural changes in programs and public policies in the areas of health, education and gender.
