Hygiene Promotion and Behaviour Change in the COVID19 pandemic situation
Since the first case of COVID19 was identified in Indonesia on March 2nd, 2020, both national and local governments have taken many actions to inform the citizens and prevent the pandemic from spreading in country. Despite these efforts, many challenges persist, especially for the poorest urban populations in Java, whose living arrangements limit compliance with social distancing and whose livelihoods cannot be kept through Working from Home arrangements. These are also the populations that struggle the most to observe ideal hygiene behaviours, due to limited access to water, soap and proper sanitation facilities and to an overall lack of awareness/misinformation on safe behaviours. These populations are also the ones that rely the most on traditional marketplaces, public transport hubs and community level health facilities, and whose children will likely be returning soon returning to public schools.
Also, the areas of Central and East Lombok that have long held the tradition of providing labourers to the most affluent areas of Bali and Java, face specific challenges. These are predominantly female domestic workers and cleaners in all sorts of businesses, including hotel chains. The mobility of these female workers between their places of work and their home villages is high, given that many leave their children behind with grandparents or other relatives and thus visit as often as possible. These populations are therefore at a higher risk of infection, a risk that is further heightened for women and girls (the primary care takers in the household), for the elder and for people with disabilities.
To support the Government in addressing these challenges, SNV Indonesia has designed an intervention aiming to:
- Increase knowledge, motivation and self-efficacy for practice of handwashing and environmental cleanliness for targeted populations
- Adapt and validate messages and doable actions that can be replicated by partners (local governments, local CSOs, rights holders’ groups, youth groups) and shared with provincial and national governments, for wider impact
In Java, the intervention will take place in the Probolinggo, Gresik, Sleman, Kebumen, Gunung Kidul, Cimahi, Surakarta and in Bantul.
In NTB, the intervention will take place in East and Central Lombok.
