BIDA Solusyon sa COVID-19 Campaign Materials

The Philippine Department of Health, with support from USAID’s Breakthrough ACTION project, developed a social and behavior change campaign focused on COVID-19 preventive behaviors.

The campaign encourages people to #BIDASolusyon (Be The Solution) by following 4 BIDA behaviors:

  • B – Bawal walang mask (Don’t go out without a mask)
  • – I-sanitize ang mga kamay, iwas hawak sa mga bagay (Sanitize your hand, avoid touching things)
  • D – Dumistansya ng isang metro (Keep your distance of 1 meter)
  • A – Alamin ang totoong impormasyon (Know the right information)

It is a multimedia campaign to maximize reach and enable behavior.

            Vaccine Messaging Guide

            This Guide was developed by the Yale Institute of Global Health and the UNICEF Demand for Immunization team. It is intended for public health professionals, communicators, advocates and anyone else who wishes to create pro-vaccine content to motivate people to vaccinate themselves and their entourage.

            An increasing body of formative research has identified a complex mix of determinants of people’s vaccine decisions, however there remains a paucity of implementation research that has applied these insights to the design and testing of messaging interventions.

            Every recommendation herein is based on the current evidence, but the authors encourage users to test all content for behavior-related outcomes.
