Sarah Kosgei, Amref Health Africa: On working with national and country governments to strengthen hygiene and behaviour change: “We must not forget that the government is the leader in this and also if we're looking at sustainability and ownership, we cannot work outside the government systems.”
Myriam Sibide, Brands on a Mission: “Very quickly we started thinking about how do we dispatch hand washing facilities, and our first wave was estimated at over $3 million or so and reached over 40% of the population.”
Sarah Kosgei, Amref Health Africa: "We know that for #hygiene, children are a huge, huge influence and are also agents of change."
Ricky Tapa Thompson, Safe Boda: "When we talk about programmes like @BizFightsCorona, we might think it is very complicated to achieve. But usually when programmes are more practical, when ideas are more connected to the population, it becomes much easier to achieve results,"
Ricky Tapa Thompson, Safe Boda: "Sometimes it becomes quite difficult to achieve the result if you don't prepare (people) with enough information that puts them in the best position to make the right decision."
Anila Gopal, Unilever: "Two kinds of expertise that I'd like to talk about: One is the interdisciplinary field of behaviour change, bringing together public health marketing, etc. And then of course, the ability to scale."
Titus Ronoh, Shujaaz Inc: "We used the hashtag #protectyourfamily, because for many young people, their main interest was not to protect themselves, but the people they cared about - their family, friends, neighbours & the community."
Titus Ronoh, Shujaaz Inc: "Young people know what needs to be done. All that they need is an enabling environment. Give them the ability to do it, and they will do wonders."
Ekua Yankah, Brands on a Mission: "Amref's coordination with public health officers and government ministries across the world is key in enabling us to scale impact and reach the often excluded populations."
