People in Gaza are potentially extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 due to crowded conditions, water shortages and near-collapse of healthcare systems. Vaccine is in short supply and under 100,000 have been vaccinated in a population of over 2 million. The only laboratory for COVID testing was hit and damaged during the recent airstrikes (May 2021). Minimising infection rates, especially for the most vulnerable, is therefore crucial, and more effort is needed to combat misinformation and to facilitate the vaccination process. Trained health workers will therefore conduct 200 awareness workshops with distribution of hygiene kits, targeting 1,200 children aged 6-16 (as likely carriers), 800 men and 1,000 women including adults who are older or have disabilities. Information will also be disseminated to a wider audience using social media and radio messages via CFTA’s own internet-based radio. Most awareness-raising work fails to address issues like stigma and personal hygiene – issues which this initiative will make sure to cover.
