Description: 

This guide seeks to address the following questions:

  • Why include a protection, gender, and inclusion lens in risk communication and community engagement?
  • Which populations are at disproportionate risk in public health emergencies?
  • What are the key implications for risk communication and community engagement?
  • What are the key protection, gender, and inclusion actions for risk communications and community engagement?

By understanding these issues, we can support the capacity of vulnerable populations in emergencies. We can give them priority assistance, and engage them in decision-making processes for response, recovery, preparedness, and risk reduction.
