Twaweza is collecting data on citizens’ knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) related to COVID-19. This will be done through a series of mobile phone surveys of a representative sample of the country’s adult population. The evidence generated will a) provide baseline information on the status of citizens’ knowledge attitudes and practices (behaviors) across Uganda b) improve the understanding of citizens’ knowledge gaps on COVID-19, so as to improve public information campaigns, c) provide data useful post COVID-19 to assess the effectiveness of the public health response, and enhance global knowledge on the role of citizen data in combating infectious diseases. This research adopts a cross-sectional study design with a sample of 2,000 respondents. Data will be collected from two (2) call rounds proposed for April and May 2020.
