The Zambia Family South Central (ZAMFAM SC) Project has sensitized over 70,000 families on the measures of combating the corona virus in their communities in Southern and Central Provinces of Zambia.

The project staff has been teaching the families on the principles of the ‘new normal’ and how to adapt to changed lifestyles in an effort to prevent members of their families from contracting the virus as well as spreading it to others.

Among the first measures taken was the reinforcement of the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) principles to the families as an essential protective measure for human health during all infectious disease outbreaks, including COVID-19.

The project teams have advised that every home without running water should have tip-taps or other hand washing facilities, emphasising the importance of washing hands for 20 seconds with soap.

Members of the Action Groups  and Teen Clubs have been asked to always wear masks when leaving their houses and when attending the Group meetings, with strict observance of physical distancing. To this effect, the number of people permitted to gather at one of these meetings has been reduced to meet the Ministry of Health guidelines on the measures of reducing the chances of transmitting the virus during gatherings.

The project has since incorporated COVID 19 messages in its radio programs to remind listeners on how to prevent themselves and others from contracting the disease.
