International Development Research @ Cambridge


Dr Ebele Mogo is a researcher at the MRC Epidemiology Unit and the founder of the volunteer-run nonprofit Engage Africa Foundation, which uses people-centred and innovative approaches to engage communities especially young people in prevention.

While Engage Africa Foundation’s focus has been on non-communicable diseases, the organisation is drawing on what it has learnt so far to respond to COVID-19. As misinformation is rife, the right information has not always provided the required behaviour change, and the information is not always accessible, Ebele and Engage Africa Foundation led an effort to crowd-source translation and distribution of material related to COVID-19 based on WHO guidelines into as many African languages as possible.

Translations into Amharic, Lingala, Kitharaka, Luganda, Pedi, siSwati, Tigrinya, Tshiluba, Twi, Pidgin, Hausa, Yoruba  Igbo, Kinyrwanda, Swahili, Xhosa, Fulani, and Oromo have been made available
