      Social listening supports COVID-19 Communication response in the Philippines

      USAID Breakthrough ACTION worked with the Philippines’ Department of Health and Evident Marketing Communications to set up social listening scans on COVID-19 information, prevention and treatment, and vaccine confidence. These scans help DOH navigate shifting narratives and counter misinformation and disinformation while promoting COVID-19 prevention behaviors. They are also useful for decision-making and evaluation and helpful in documenting lessons learned to continuously improve SBC approaches.

        COVID-19 and Meta: Social and Behavioral Change Communication Learnings from 20 Countries

        Throughout 2021, CARE launched 45 locally-led campaigns in 20 countries applying lessons learned during an eight-week training series with Meta.

              How South Sudan Beat the Odds to Delivery COVID Vaccines

              Led by community members like CARE’s Health & Nutrition Coordinator Dr. Emmanuel Ojwang and CARE’s Health and Nutrition Manager Dr. Kawa Tong, South Sudan solicited investments in the South Sudanese healthcare system after those 132,000 life-saving doses went to waste in May. They quickly secured surge funding from CARE’s Fast & Fair Campaign, South Sudan’s Health Pool Fund, UNHCR, and UNICEF, and were able to change the story by the time the next round of doses arrived in July.

                Symptoms of a broken system: the gender gaps in COVID-19 decision-making

                A growing chorus of voices are questioning the glaring lack of women in COVID-19 decision-making bodies. Men dominating leadership positions in global health has long been the default mode of governing. This is a symptom of a broken system where governance is not inclusive of any type of diversity, be it gender, geography, sexual orientation, race, socio-economic status or disciplines within and beyond health – excluding those who offer unique perspectives, expertise and lived realities. This not only reinforces inequitable power structures but undermines an effective COVID-19 response – ultimately costing lives.

                By providing quantitative data, we critically assess the gender gap in task forces organised to prevent, monitor and mitigate COVID-19, and emphasise the paramount exclusion of gender-diverse voices.
