Reaching Communities in Chad with COVID-19 Safety Messages
This case study relates how communities in Chad are carrying out SBC for COVID-19, especially considering the crowded conditions in which much of the population lives. By using community members, the messaging has gotten out.
Village chiefs, neighbourhood leaders and health workers have volunteered to be part of Chad’s door-to-door campaigns to sensitize the public. They are mostly members of the communities they are reaching out to. In a country where most people live communally, it is a challenge to enforce physical distancing.
