“The Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS) is delighted this week to have supported the initiatives of People with Disabilities Solomon Islands to raise awareness of COVID-19 to their target groups, mainly people with special needs across the country.
“15 volunteers and 4 staff of the People with Disability Solomon Islands that will eventually be out conducting awareness and assisting people with special needs to prepare and respond to COVID-19 participated in the training workshop.
“The training involved raising awareness around COVID-19, its preventative measures and the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 response approaches. The sessions also introduced participants to a variety of COVID-19 Information, Communication and Educational (IEC) materials, which they can use to raise awareness amongst the community of people with special needs.”
