COVID-19 Risk Communication and Community Engagement Toolkit for Humanitarian Actors (“RCCE Toolkit”)
This kit aims to help NGOs strengthen their disease outbreak preparedness and respond quickly and effectively to emerging epidemics and pandemics.
Though suitable for any NGO that responds to public health emergencies, most of the tools have special considerations for humanitarian actors working in complex settings. The RCCE Readiness Kit guides users through outbreak preparedness and response phases and readiness actions to help them better prepare and plan to use RCCE in an outbreak response. These recommended actions are not prescriptive, but instead serve to prompt further thinking on local contexts, organizational capacity, coordination, and capabilities to respond to infectious disease outbreaks. The tools are provided in editable Word formats so organizations can adapt them to their specific organizational needs.
