Coronavirus and protecting elders in rural Africa

This is one of a set of films about COVID-19 made by partner organisation Picturing Health.   Elderly people in rural Africa have great respect in their communities. Many look after grandchildren or ophans from the HIV epidemic. But now they are under threat from COVID-19. What can communities do to protect their elderly? This short film explains physical distancing measures, and encourages communities to find their own solutions to keep their elderly population safe from coronavirus.
