Description As on 7th January 2020, a new strain of Coronavirus was identified. The virus has been renamed by WHO as SARS-CoV-2 and the disease caused by it as COVID-19. Risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) is the main stay for containment of COVID-19. With a view to engage Tribal communities on COVID-19 RCCE UNICEF and TRIFED initiated the 'Van Dhan Samajik Doori Jagrookta Abhiyaan'. Towards this, UNICEF developed a training and communication package intended for training TRIFED staff, VDVK leaders, NTFP gatherers and processors, SHGs to reach out tribal communities. The package consists of this FAQ booklet. This FAQ answers common queries and concerns that tribal communities may have related to COVID-19.
