KNOW COVID-19 TO SAY NO TO COVID-19

Words matter! Stigma can isolate people, prevent them from seeking medical care, and adopt healthy behavious. The level of stigma associated with COVID-19 is based on three main factors: 1) it is a disease that’s new and for which there are still many unknowns; 2) we are often afraid of the unknown; and 3) it is easy to associate that fear with ‘others’. How we communicate about COVID-19 is critical in supporting people to take effective action to help combat the disease and to avoid fuelling fear and stigma.
