COVID-19 is an infectious disease, which is mainly spread during closed contact and by small droplets produced when that infected cough, sneeze, or talk. Therefore, UNICEF is seeking to add content with COVID-19 to the adolescent app to protect adolescents from this debilitating virus. Under the APC project, 4,000 adolescents will be aware of what they can do to protect themselves from the coronavirus. By using this application, adolescents will interact with other adolescents about COVID-19.
The total reach through the "Learning on COVID-19 through Mobile Application" in 2020: 136,846 adolescents (69,431 girls and 52,945 boys, 14,270 Parents and community people, and 200 Frontline workers including NGO officials).
- Direct reach = 4,000 (Girls = 2,173, Boys = 1,627, and Frontline workers = 200)
- Indirect reach = 132,846 members (Girls = 67,258 and Boys = 51,318)
- Parents and community people = 14,270 (Mothers = 3,300, Fathers = 2,700, Others = 8,270)
- Frontline workers (CRFs, SWs, and NGO officials) = 200
