Technical Exchange: Evolving Risk Communication Materials throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 PHC City Technical Exchange Series continued the conversation about risk communication with ten African cities. Participants shared strategies and lessons learned around shifting their communication strategies as the pandemic risk evolves, as well as campaign tactics to encourage adherence to public health and social measures (PHSMs). Particularly in high-risk areas such as public transit and markets, the city COVID-19 responders agreed that campaigns can play a critical role in maintaining services while keeping virus transmission low.
