Project Launch: 8-5-20
COVID-19 Neba is a locally designed app that will share accurate, up to date information on COVID-19 from the World Health Organization, Center for Disease Control and Local Ministry of Health. The app will translate information about the spread of the virus and prevention measures into local languages and will provide text, audio, and visual materials to support people living with hearing and visual impairments. The community organization, STATUS, will also introduce an online mask-wearing competition to promote the use of masks among Malawians. Over 10,000 Malawians are targetted to benefit from the app and subsequent social media, radio, and television campaigns.
