II. Organisational Context
As part of the COVID-19 response in Liberia, UNDP has been supporting the National Response, including through providing essential PPEs and conducting public awareness relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This campaign is for CSOs to disseminate information and raise awareness on the coronavirus and promote public health measures to support the prevention of COVID-19. The intervention which will mobilize local Community-based Organizations (CBOs) to intensify awareness and sensitization, will focus on vulnerable and marginalized groups, including the elderly, people living in high-density population areas, women, people living with immune-deficiencies, and others. .
This intervention will also focus on identifying and isolating COVID-19 cases to reduce community transmission by linking them with the appropriate national/international institution available in said locale. The enhanced surveillance strategy will involve three (3) phases. Phase 1 is a period of community engagement, risk communication and awareness creation, followed by Phase 2 which entails five days of promoting voluntary sample collection for COVID-19 testing. Phase 3 involves sustaining community engagement to maintain prevention practices and compliance with COVID-19 isolation protocols by members of the community.
