Supporting a Chiefdom-Based COVID-19 Response in Zambia

JSH in collaboration with USAID DISCOVER-Health and Zambia Partners Against COVID-19 (ZPAC-19) entered into an agreement with Prudential Life Assurance Ltd to print COVID-19 IEC materials in all the 7 major local languages and to distribute them to traditional leaders across the country. These materials were aimed at reinforcing COVID-19 messaging and the adoption of COVID-19 preventive behaviors, as well as encouraging timely access to care for those who are symptomatic. This support from Prudential Life Assurance has assisted chiefdoms cement gains in behavior change, to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.
