The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Ubuntu Guinea-Bissau Academy launch a remote awareness campaign via telephone against COVID-19

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Ubuntu Guinea-Bissau Academy launch a remote awareness campaign via telephone against COVID-19 in the country, via a follow-up cell.

Using its network of more than 1,000 young people and women trained under the Ubuntu Leaders Academy project, the organization is following and sensitizing, via telephone, several communities across the country.

Based on a follow-up and awareness guide, five technicians from the Ubuntu Academy follow, through permanent remote contact, 40 trainers spread across the country, who in turn are in permanent remote contact with the 1000 volunteers, youth and women , spread across the various communities in the country, reporting the situation of the communities to the academy's technicians, who, if necessary, report to authorities. 

Contact with communities not only provides awareness of them on ways to combat COVID-19, but also focuses on the identification and tracking of possible situations of violence, especially against women and children, situations of extreme shortage, speculation prices of basic necessities and spreading false news about the coronavirus pandemic. The entire campaign is carried out respecting social distance and non agglomeration.

  

This action is supported by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the United Nations Peacebuilding Fund, which guarantee network contacts.
