Survey of the 2019 Coronavirus (COVID-19)-related Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) in Liberia – Start of Data Collection

Together with our partners evaplan GmbH at the University Hospital Heidelberg, and the Heidelberg Institute of Global Health (HIGH), we are supporting the William V.S Tubman University in Harper to conduct a KAP study regarding COVID-19 in Liberia. The study is part of a larger GIZ-funded project to help build the research capacity of the university, specifically in relation to public health.

The purpose of this study is to understand what people know about COVID-19 in Liberia. The results of this survey will be shared with local policy makers and organisations to help them design appropriate interventions to help prevent the spread of the virus and ultimately save lives in Liberia.

If you are a Liberian resident and aged 18 years or over, please follow the link to access the survey: https://bit.ly/2z4gZNn. We would be most grateful if you would also share this with your Liberian friends, family and colleagues.

Participation in this survey is entirely voluntary and responses will be kept confidential. This is an anonymous survey, and no identifying personal information will be stored. The National Research Ethics Board of Liberia has approved this survey.
