    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.
