This brief sets out practical considerations relating to the design and impact of measures that restrict human movement patterns in the context of COVID-19. These measures include: quarantine, in which individuals who have been exposed to a communicable disease are separated from others for the duration of the disease’s incubation period; isolation, in which individuals with a communicable disease are separated from others for as long as they are infectious; and social distancing, in which individuals or large groups of people are restricted from gathering.
Pretesting is an essential component of all communication messages and materials and ensures that what is designed is really suitable for the intended audiences. Even quick methods of pre-testing, such as rapid listening groups with different people nearby, can provide useful insight into how a behavior is understood or a message is perceived. Pre-testing helps ensure that your messages and materials have been contextualized properly.
Coordinated, consistent messages are critical to providing effective communication response, enabling multiple stakeholders to speak and engage the public and communities with one clear voice across all channels of communication. Technical information alone, even if in simple, understandable language, is unlikely to prompt significant behavior change.
The novel Coronavirus (nCoV) epidemic in 2019 -2020 has recently emerged. The route of transmission is not totally known, although it is known that it can spread from person to person, and local health care systems may be ill-equipped to handle a large-scale outbreak. Furthermore, misconceptions and misinformation about the disease often spreads rapidly in such epidemics.
This strategy outlines the importance and priorities of RCCE in the response to new coronavirus in Africa, including suggested RCCE activities throughout the different phases of reparedness,
containment and response, with supporting tools to help deliver these. It serves as a template for African National Societies to develop their own RCCE strategy based on their local context and capacities and can support with the development of preparedness, contingency and response plans.
This job description includes requirements, qualifications, and an explanation of job duties.
This checklist was developed on February 27, 2020 by the OFDA-funded READY Initiative for Outbreak Preparedness Planning Workshops conducted at regional and country
levels. It is iterative and will be updated to reflect updates in Covid-19 guidance.

Le réseau CDAC a commandé un guide pratique afin de parler de son expérience et de celle de bien d'autres afin de documenter les approches, les pratiques et les outils de la gestion des rumeurs. Il s'adresse principalement aux responsables et au personnel de terrain des programmes humanitaires dans le but de les aider avec des conseils pratiques sur la façon de gérer les rumeurs dans leurs programmes d'intervention, d'une manière réalisable dans le cadre de conflits de priorités.
