Engaging Communities to ensure safety and wellbeing of families during COVID-19 pandemic
By addressing complacency towards COVID-19 appropriate behaviors, getting vaccinated and seeking services for shadow issues.
To ensure people continue to follow COVID-19 safety measures and to sensitize them on the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine, health officials across the country are conducting risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) activities in the communities.
As part of its support to the Royal Government of Bhutan’s COVID-19 response, UNICEF Bhutan is supporting the community engagement activities in 14 districts where health workers are sensitizing local government leaders, religious leaders, village health workers and teachers including school health coordinators on keeping their communities safe from COVID-19. The Health Promotion Division with the Ministry of Health is leading the RCCE activities.
