MANASO is working with National AIDS Commission (NAC) in the COVID-19 response. MANASO as a network has a comparative advantage in influencing change since it is already present in communities through network members who act as agents of change. The response is focusing on building capacity of CBOs through knowledge exchange sessions on prevention, signs and symptoms and causes of corona virus. The CBOs are then requested to disseminate information into their communities and initiate behavior change which is critical for prevention of the virus. The project is being implemented in 15 districts.
