Digital tools to help communities prevent, detect, and respond to COVID-19, while still maintaining their overall health and wellness
We've created a Facebook Messenger COVID chatbot as part of our response. We think it's pretty great and want to share it with the OpenIdeo community.
What information do you feel you are missing about COVID-19?
We need more information about how people in LMICs and other low-resource settings can stay safe and access services.
What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?
Around the world, the impact of this crisis is going to be most acutely experienced by vulnerable populations in low and middle income countries. This are people living in areas with health systems which are under-resourced; who do not have the living space or the professional option to practice 'social distancing'; who are difficult to access with health promotion messaging due to literacy issues; and who are more likely to be living with pre-existing risk factors such as COPD, TB or HIV.
