Review of Risk Communication and Community Engagement Initiative for COVID-19 Prevention Behaviors in Cambodia

Analysed survey data show that country-level public messages disseminated by government institutions and partner organizations appear to have played a role in encouraging actions against contracting Coronavirus, with 99 per cent of respondents reporting that they received messages on Coronavirus and 80 per cent noting that public messaging was their main reason for practicing precautionary behaviours. Facebook stood out as the number-one channel through which respondents received information about Coronavirus, even while it was one of the least trusted news sources. On the other hand, the survey data showed that a large number of people also received and trusted information from local leaders, particularly among older generations and those with lower levels of education.
