Review of risk communication and community engagement initiative for COVID-19 prevention behaviours in Cambodia

UNICEF Cambodia continues to support the Royal Government of Cambodia and the World Health Organization (WHO) in risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) at the national and sub-national level. These interventions aim to provide the general population, particularly the most marginalized women and children with timely and reliable information on Coronavirus risks and preventive actions so that people can better protect themselves and others. This report reviews data from an online and phone survey to measure the current progress of country-level RCCE initiatives in promoting risk-reducing behaviours that prevent the spread of Coronavirus. It draws on Fishbein and Ajzen’s Theory of Planned Behaviour as a framework for assessing whether or not these public messages on COVID-19 have succeeded in encouraging people to use preventive behaviours along a predicted pathway of behaviour change.
