Mental Health assistance to Rohingya Women and Children for Covid-19


In planning for the pandemic, the Bangladesh government and aid organizations are attempting to raise awareness in the camps about sanitation, hygiene, and immunity. This is largely accomplished by Majhis, or Rohingya community leaders, who serve to disseminate knowledge about the importance of maintaining social and physical distance, handwashing, and wearing masks.

Recently, the Ministry of Women and Children Affairs is conducting special activities in mental health and protection services for Rohingyas in case of coronavirus.
As part of the “Multisectoral Program for the Prevention of Violence against Women”, Rohingya women and children can seek advice on mental health or any form of violence by contacting the medical psychologist and psychosocial counselor at the Regional Trauma Counseling Center and Mental Health Services Center of the Ministry of Women and Child Affairs.
