Ethiopia: Raising Awareness on COVID-19 Through Video

In a bid to complement the government’s efforts to raise awareness about COVID-19, Family Guidance Association of Ethiopia (FGAE) has created a short video that communicates the importance of undertaking preventive measures to stop the spread of the disease.  

The 65-second-long video shares information about the need for practicing good hygiene, wearing of facemasks, social distancing, and other quarantine measures aimed at curbing the spread of the virus. The video carries subtitles in Amharic -the national language that is understood by all Ethiopians across the country.

The video has been shared multiple times on FGAE’s social media platforms, reaching thousands of Ethiopians. It has also been broadcast in 46 FGAE-owned health facilities across the country. In addition, the video has been screened at various public television screens in major towns in Ethiopia.
