Covid Health Animation Project
A research-based approach to fight disinformation, increase knowledge and change behaviors around COVID 19 in underserved communities through culturally-tailored animated content.
Why are we doing this
On March 11, 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General declared COVID-19 a global pandemic—the most serious respiratory virus threat since the 1918 influenza outbreak. Emerging evidence shows a disproportionate burden of COVID-19 on low-income and racial(ized) and ethnic minority communities.
We are in the process of creating animations across various cultural contexts directed at the most vulnerable/marginalized populations
The videos have been reached over 1.5 million people.
