Upper West Regional Youth Federation – Covid19 Pandemic Campaign

The COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana is part of the worldwide pandemic of corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The first two cases in Ghana were confirmed on 12 March 2020, when two infected people came to Ghana, one from Norway and the other from Turkey.

In the Upper West Region, as at the end of July the case count was at 88 cases. This infection rate is dangerous for a region with high poverty levels, high illiteracy which can be a driving force for many not to follow the laid down protocol to reduce the spread.

To drum home the necessity of wearing a nose/face mask as a precautionary measure, the Upper West Regional Youth Federation will embark on week-long campaigns within the major markets, supermarkets and also through selected radio stations within the Region.

Key Activities

  1. Design and Print campaign flyers for distribution and sharing on social media
