Abstract:
We are supporting the fight against COVID-19 in Mozambique by collecting survey data and testing public health interventions.In our first survey round, we conducted phone interviews of 2,405 households across 76 communities in Sofala, Manica, and Zambezia provinces of central Mozambique between July 10 and August 16, 2020. We collected data on COVID-19 knowledge, beliefs, and behaviors, as well as on household income and food security. Future survey rounds will test over-the-phone interventions to promote social distancing and learning about the disease.
