Covid-19 appropriate behaviour (CAB) play a great role in preventing the spread of the corona virus. However, with over a year of the pandemic related communication, information overload and fatigue have set in. There is also confusion pertaining to priority messages for COVID-19 prevention and the most appropriate communication channels for widespread dissemination. As the second wave of COVID-19 engulfs India, it is critical that along with vaccination efforts, emphasis and support to protective behaviour information dissemination is enhanced and strategized as per the need of the hour. To further outreach of CAB, especially to remote areas, support of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to the overstretched government health system is essential.
 
On the occasion of World Hand Hygiene Day (5 May 2021), IRC, India Sanitation Coalition, UNICEF, WaterAid India, WHO, and the SuSANA India chapter are organizing a webinar with experts from the field of Public Health, WASH, Disaster Management and more. The purpose of the webinar is to activate organizations and networks across sectors to join the call to action and the dissemination of CAB for the second wave of the pandemic. 
 
Information from the webinar and the following e-discussion will be used to develop a readily available guidance document to be shared with the Central and state governments as well as CSOs for dissemination through multiple channels. We hope to reach several hundred CSOs across India who in turn can propagate these messages in their communities.
 
The objectives of the webinar are:
 
  • To activate a network of CSOs to endorse the call to action and disseminate critical CAB messages, using appropriate communication tools.  
  • To collectively agree on channels for regular updates, exchange of solutions, resources, and evidence, keeping in mind the changing situation.
