ABSTRACT

COVID-19 Explained: No Isolation Without Consultation   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "While Health Sector has yet to finalize plans for shielding and isolation facilities, consultations were held to determine what factors and logic will impact people's decision to engage in these plans more generally. Rohingyas' wider acceptance of health interventions is equally as important as health intervention themselves and there is an urgent need to consider 'community acceptance' as an intrinsic part of health intervention programming. [...] Edition 2 of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Explained showed that failure to consult Rohingya on decisions about COVID-19 have already negatively impacted their trust in humanitarians and there is a significant risk that trust may be further eroded if and when isolation and shielding plans are implemented without discussion and consultation with Rohingya."
