COVID-19 Public Health Resource Repository

In an effort to support Somalia’s preparedness and response to COVID-19, OGOW EMR launched a feature within our mobile health application to address concerns, misinformation and rumors around the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).  The tool includes a contextualized self-assessment video.

This was a participatory process of co-creation that had input from the government, humanitarian actors, the private sector and academia.

All of the content has been endorsed by the Somali government, and it can also be found in the official Repository of COVID-19 Resources under the joint coordination body between the Ministry of Health and the UN, the Risk Communication and Community Engagement (RCCE) taskforce.
