Community-based health care during COVID-19

The guidance on community-based healthcare, including outreach and campaigns in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic is a consolidated joint guidance between WHO, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and UNICEF.

Decision-makers will need to make difficult choices to ensure that COVID-19 and other urgent, ongoing public health problems are addressed while minimising risks to health workers and communities. Existing delivery approaches will need to be adapted as the risk−benefit analysis for any given activity changes in the context of a pandemic.
