A methological guide for the implementation of awareness activities on health risks


In 2019, PIROI developed activities and tools to raise awareness of the dengue fever in Reunion Island.

The best practices that emerged from this project were shared with National Societies to facilitate the implementation of similar awareness activities in the Indian Ocean territories.

This project was made possible thanks to financial support from the Prefecture of Reunion Island and the participation of PIROI volunteers who were engaged in the campaign.

As part of its regional Disaster Risk Management programme, from 10 to 14 February PIROI organised technical training on logistics and procurement in emergencies.

22 logisticians and logistics officers from PIROI-member National Societies and other NGOs received training from two of PIROI’s Logistics Coordinators.
