This project is a rapid review of evidence on interventions intended to mobilize community-level action to control infectious disease outbreaks in low resource and humanitarian contexts. The primary aims are to provide a critical analysis of current evidence on community engagement in preparing for or responding to infectious disease outbreaks and other emergencies; and to identify approaches and practices that can inform efforts to address COVID-19-related risks in low resource settings. In addition to documenting lessons and potential good practices from past crises, we will identify critical gaps in current evidence.
