Case study 3: Helping communities overcome stigma through inclusion

World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “Case study 3: Helping communities overcome stigma through inclusion” – below is their description.

Faith-based organizations like Circle of Hope are well-integrated in communities, thanks to a deep understanding of local customs, needs, and realities, that have helped increase levels of trust. This case study explores how community engagement trainings of local healthcare professionals, faith leaders and youth volunteers led to immense uptake of contact tracing protocols and improved health services amongst previously reluctant communities.
