RCCE is a priority intervention in the COVID-19 response to inform decision making related to personal risk, to mitigate rumours and misinformation, to share information and advice between experts, communities and officials, and to effectively involve children and their parents in the response to control the outbreak. SAVE Trust has prioritized addressing misinformation and communal tensions to ensure communities continue to observe physical and social distancing, and that discrimination does not become further entrenched.
SAVE Trust approached frontline functionaries to increase knowledge on prevention and containment measures. These groups include health, sanitation and early childhood development teachers who help ensure that the support is reaching children and their parents right down to the village level.
A village-level public advocacy campaign is being developed to address prevailing stigma and discrimination, including supporting helplines to address negative attitudes, misinformation and violence against women and girls. An approach involving targeted messages presented through traditional platforms and tools will effectively engage communities to promote safe behaviours and and support to the most vulnerable. This may result in intensified community engagement.
