How to include marginalised and vulnerable people in risk communication and community engagement
Developed by colleagues from Risk Communication and Community Engagement Working Group on COVID-19 Preparedness and Response in Asia and the Pacific. The guidance note highlights key vulnerable and marginalised groups and gives advice on risk communication and practical community engagement actions to include them.
The Risk Communication and Community Engagement Working Group on COVID-19 Preparedness and Response in Asia and the Pacific is co-chaired by WHO, IFRC and OCHA. Many thanks also to colleagues from WHO, IFRC, OCHA, BBC Media Action, Humanity & Inclusion, UNFPA, UNICEF, UNHCR, IOM, UNAIDS, ASEAN SOGIE Caucus, and the Regional Emergency Gender-Based Violence Advisory team for their inputs. Further thanks to Translators without Borders for their excellent plain language editing and UNOCHA for the super quick design.
