COVID-19-related Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices among Adolescents and Young People in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh

Population Council Institute

The Population Council COVID-19 study team is implementing rapid phone-based surveys to collect information on knowledge, attitudes and practices, as well as needs, among 2,041 young people (ages 19–23 years) and/or an adult household member. Baseline findings on awareness of COVID-19 symptoms, perceived risk, awareness of and ability to carry out preventive behaviors, misconceptions, and fears will inform the development of government and other stakeholders’ interventions and/or strategies.
