A talk by Sharath Srinivasan and Luke Church on their work supporting a COVID -19 Risk Communications and Community Engagement Response in Kenya and Somalia.

Collaborating with CGHR spin-out Africa’s Voices Foundation and through their new initiative called Katikati, they developed innovative methods for quickly reaching and responding to tens of thousands of citizens to address their questions and concerns on the pandemic.

This talk will identify the particular challenges faced in both countries during the pandemic, the gaps in the response, and the design, implementation and results of the socio-technical tools methods used by the project partners. It will involve a practical demonstration of the tools developed and critically appraise learnings for approaches to communications in crisis.
