This study aims to contribute to an effort to contextualise and adapt public health measures among Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in order to slow or stop the spread of COVID-19.
To do so, it will focus on:
These questions are not answered yet in the case of Mali. This study will try to understand how the COVID-19 response could be supported through improved implementation and adoption of these measures by IDPs.
A qualitative exploratory study involving semi-structured interviews and focus groups will be led. The participants will be administrative, political and health authorities; humanitarian actors; and IDPs living in Bamako and Ségou.
To slow or stop the spread of Covid-19 among vulnerable people such as IDPs, public health measures must be adapted to their socioeconomic realities. This is what this research will contribute to. Propositions will be made to authorities and humanitarian actors to improve the response against COVID-19.
This study will provide a better understanding of the challenges encountered by the authorities and humanitarian actors in implementing the isolation, quarantine, social distancing and containment measures adopted in Mali in the context of the fight against COVID-19.
It will make it possible to identify the difficulties (socio-cultural, economic, demographic, etc.) encountered by IDPs in the context of the adoption of these measures in Mali as part of the fight against COVID-19.
Finally, it will provide a better understanding of the adjustments made by IDPs to overcome the difficulties. The results will contribute to advancing scientific knowledge and improving the adoption and implementation of the four measures.
