COVID-19 and SBC Materials Development

This Technical Brief presents workarounds—tips and tricks to use digital platforms—to conduct pretests virtually. In this document, two instances for virtual pretesting are presented: the development of social and behavior change (SBC) materials and the development of job aids. Both use similar processes, but with specific differences that are highlighted in this document.

This document provides members of the primary health care (PHC) community with foundational messages to use in communication and advocacy efforts about how and why countries, global decision-makers and donors can – and must – center PHC as a key component of the COVID-19 response in the weeks and months to come.

This document includes key Risk Communication and Community Engagement (RCCE) considerations during shifting lockdown measures, safety measures for conducting in-person community meetings, and a template that brings both of these considerations together to help agencies adapt their RCCE approaches as these measures shift.

This toolbox offers resources on general guidance for COVID-19, as well as specific guidance for clinical aspects, public health, communication, and guidance for different audiences.

This Message Toolkit was developed by the Philippine Department of Health (DOH) together with USAID's Breakthrough ACTION project, UNICEF and WHO. It was designed to help the DOH staff, local government stakeholders, non-government organizations, international organizations and others to communicate consistently and effectively about COVID-19.
