Partnering with diaspora organizations to raise awareness
Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, IOM Germany has been partnering with The African Network of Germany e.V. (TANG) on virtual awareness raising events covering the status of Covid-19 in Germany, and the availability of vaccinations.
The events were held in partnership with Dr. Cihan Çelik, a pneumologist and doctor for internal medicine, and Dr. med Terence Afube, member of the Nigerian Medical Association.
The events targeted migrants from Africa living in Germany and focused on the importance of vaccinations in preventing the spread of COVID-19, and refuting myths and misconceptions surrounding the virus and vaccination. In total, 118 participants have attended.
