Community mobilization

Working together with local administrations, departments of health and traditional authorities to make sure communities have the knowledge and practical solutions to protect themselves from COVID-19 is one of ADPP's top priorities at the moment.  

Project staff, community health agents, activists, teacher training students and project participants are helping to ensure that communities are well informed on how to avoid COVID-19. In cities, towns and villages throughout 17 provinces, ADPP teams are working individually, in trios or in bigger groups and using leaflets, door-to-door visits and collaboration with “sobas” (local leaders) to spread accurate information, and to combat the many rumours which abound. The teams are also helping communities establish practical solutions, including “tippy tap” handwashing systems, or painting marks on the ground to promote social distancing at market stall, shops and clinics. In a Chevron-financed inititative in Cabinda, 30 ADPP activists are carrying out community mobilization in Cabinda and Cacongo municipalities together with the authorities.
