Crafting peace and building a safer world

Innovative Mass Messaging on Covid-19

Africa centres for disease control and prevention (africa cdc)

This project provides vetted and culturally relevant information to citizens to counter disbelief and misinformation, catalyze citizens' actions and solidarity, and combat stigmatization. Led by the Africa CDC and Co-Creation Hub (CCHub) and facilitated by the GIZ Office to the African Union, the project enables technology and communication start-ups to support last-mile communications focused on meaningful citizen participation and functional collaboration between Africa’s policymakers and the continent’s growing innovation ecosystem. Over 3 million Africans in semi-urban and rural communities have been reached in more than 20 countries.
