Controlling the spread of COVID-19 requires persuading the mass public to change their behavior in significant ways. Many efforts to encourage behavior change, such as public service announcements, social media posts, and billboards, involve short, persuasive appeals, yet the effectiveness of these messages is unknown. Here, we test whether short messages increase intentions to comply with public health guidelines.
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 – 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.
