The findings come from the latest update of the KAP COVID dashboard, which presents data from a global survey of knowledge, attitudes and practices around COVID-19. Users can access unique pages for each of the countries surveyed and disaggregate findings by sex, age, education level and residence.
“Until we have a safe and effective vaccine, behavior change is the only tool we have to stem the spread of the virus," says CCP's Susan Krenn. "This COVID dashboard will help us more efficiently focus our behavior change efforts.”

"If it takes a company trying to sell razors to have an open dialogue about gender and appropriate male behavior, so be it," writes CCP's Executive Director Susan Krenn.
