Enumerators (x15)

Sesheke (4), Mwandi (3), Kazungula(4), Livingstone(4) Districts.

Deadline: 6th June, 2022


The purpose of this assessment is to assess the baseline status and compare results with follow-up assessment post intervention. This baseline will focus on assessing the current level of understanding among the communities that will receive the face-to-face community intervention on hygiene behaviours linked to COVID-19, assessing prevalent knowledge, reported behaviours, social norms, COVID-19 status, vaccine status and its confidence and hesitancy. This assessment will also assess the actual practices of the households linked to COVID-19 behaviours (hands, mask, distance and vaccine). The information generated from this assessment will inform the current level of understanding and practices focusing on critical behaviours (handwashing with soap, mask use, physical distancing, and vaccine uptake and confidence). We expect to get gain critical insights into disaggregated audiences; women, older people and disabled.

The specific objectives are:

To assess the prevalent hygiene, COVID-19 and vaccine knowledge, reported behaviours social norms in target communities.

To assess the actual practices of key hygiene behaviours linked to COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccination status at household level.
