Purpose:

1. To equip Ni Nyampingas with knowledge about preventing common infectious diseases including coronavirus, and to help them understand that “prevention is better than cure”.

2. To help Ni Nyampingas understand the importance of preventing various diseases, especially cervical cancer and coronavirus.

3. To encourage Ni Nyampingas to help their parents and their friends get vaccinated against various diseases, especially when they are pregnant, have little children and to have their children vaccinated too.

Duration: 60 minutes

Even though people can be frightened of diseases and might not want to discuss them, it is important to spend enough time on this topic for people to understand it properly.

One hour is not enough time for an in depth discussion, but the objective is that everyone goes home with a summary. People are more engaged when the discussion isn’t too long, but this topic will require refresher sessions.
