Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya Toolkit – School/Youth Module

Purpose:

The Zika, dengue and chikungunya prevention school / youth module is intended for volunteers, educators, and peer educators teaching children from ages 7 – 16 in a school or youth club setting about the transmission, symptoms, treatment and prevention methods to address Zika, dengue and chikungunya (ZDC).

Overview:

The school / youth module is comprised of 5 topics which should be taught in sequential order. The included tools, talking points and activities allows children to learn in an interactive way about how ZDC is transmitted, how to prevent mosquito bites and reduce mosquito populations through collective school community action and social and behavior change techniques as well as what to do if a child suspects that s/he or a family member thinks they may have contracted Zika, dengue or chikungunya. The materials also address stigma associated with ZDC and help to set a supportive environment for preventing disease as a collective group through ongoing school community action.

Usage: Guideline for implementation

Community Health Preparedness of Zika and Dengue | 19-21 October 2016 | Ben Tre, Viet Nam

Viet Nam Red Cross (VNRC) conducted the Community Health Preparedness of Zika and Dengue on 19-21 October 2016 in Ben Tre Province. A total of 34 participants from 24 high-risk areas took part in this training. It is expected that the participants are equipped with the knowledge and skills in taking preparedness action in response to the spread of Zika virus. Under KOICA funded project, VNRC with technical support from CCST Bangkok and Vietnam Office provided an update training on behaviour change communication (BCC) on  Zika virus to its trained staff on epidemic control for volunteers (ECV) as well as incorporating Zika virus into their existing key messages on dengue fever prevention. The expectations of all participants have been evaluated and achieved their objectives.

The training included sessions on:

  1. Zika basic information and transmission and epidemics;
  2. Application of ECV and BCC in fighting against Zika and Dengue;
  3. Zika virus disease management;
  4. Community health preparedness on Zika and Dengue;
  5. Preparation of community assessment/discussion and household visits,
  6. Group assignments and presentations after conducted community assessment and household visits (included the exercise of drafting the action plan and community mapping).
