In addition to the national campaign waged through traditional and new, UNICEF is carrying out a series of actions at the community level by mobilizing town criers and social mobilizers, traditional and religious leaders, and youth.

The community is at the heart of the fight against coronavirus. The virus does not circulate on its own, it is the human, the carrier of the virus, who makes it circulate.

To stem the transmission of this virus, it is therefore crucial to enforce barrier gestures and instructions for confinement and social distancing. If they are not respected, it will be difficult for us to stop the spread of the virus. It is for this reason that a large part of our actions is directed towards communities.
