We engage with the stakeholders to discuss, exchange ideas, create and evaluate the educational materials (including video clips, online materials, games) We co-create activities that promote COVID-19 prevention and enhance good infection control practices.
We integrate stakeholders’ view into the contents of the interventions. We ensure different communities in the society are engaged, so that the content and format are suitable for the needs of different cultures and communities with different health conditions.
