A Playbook for Pandemic Response
A toolkit for practitioners and decision-makers to rapidly design and deploy effective behavior change interventions during a pandemic, based on principles of behavior science and human-centered design.
A thematic playbook is built weekly on a critical behavior theme. A comprehensive set of thematic playbooks will be compiled into the final playbook. These playbooks are designed in a cascading pattern of increasing details and resources. Thematic playbooks are actionable distillations of key insights. Elaboration and additional resources and reference to the content of the thematic playbooks are available in a series of Pandemic Posts located in our menu.
