We want to know more about how people in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya and Senegal respond to WhatsApp messages about COVID-19 (also known as ‘the coronavirus’ or ‘the pandemic’). The first phase of achieving this objective is to invite people in these countries – or elsewhere in Africa – to complete a survey. The survey seeks to understand how different people respond to COVID-19 messages on WhatsApp.   

The survey is available in English or French.  

 We will close responses to the survey on 26 September.
