Suvita: Mass Messaging to Improve COVID-19 Related Awareness

Suvita is working to send mass SMS reminders in partnership with the Maharashtra and Bihar state governments to ensure people are aware of government guidance e.g. around handwashing, respiratory hygiene, distancing.

Suvita is also collaborating with a Harvard team of health economists to run a rapidly adapting trial to optimise message content/schedule/delivery medium to achieve maximum reported behaviour change. These actionable findings will be shared with other state governments to help them optimise their own mass messaging systems.
