Focus Group Discussion Guide with Communities

The purpose of this risk communication and community engagement guide is to help run a focus group discussion (FGD) with community members to find out the perceptions, questions, suggestions and rumours within the community about the new coronavirus. It is important the Red Cross and Red Crescent understands what people already know and think about the new coronavirus to adapt health messages and activities to better respond to the actual needs and beliefs in the community. This FGD will also help better understand people’s risk perceptions, health behaviours and practices that are being appropriate or could instead be increasing their risk of catching the new coronavirus.
