This job aid is developed for frontline workers (Health Education Workers as well as Animal Health Workers) who are working at the community level to help community members engage with community representatives. Community representatives include, for example, elder men and women, religious leaders, teachers, traditional healers, agricultural development agents, and other relevant bodies. The job aid aims to help facilitate dialogue on how to prevent and control priority zoonotic diseases (anthrax, brucellosis, and rabies) in the community.

This message guide is intended to provide a reference for presenting accurate, standardized, basic health information in simple language, using a health message format relevant to the prevention and management of anthrax, brucellosis, Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza, Rift Valley Fever, and rabies in Ethiopia. It aims to facilitate coordination across sectors to ensure effective, consistent, and credible communication of messages through multiple sources and channels.
