COVID-19 has become part of our daily lives, and will remain that way for a long time to come. While the total lockdown has started to ease, now is the time to be more vigilant than ever. Here’s a chance to share some information, slow the spread and save some lives.
In response to the global pandemic, and in partnership with the United Nations in South Africa, research communication specialists Jive Media Africa have produced a series of posters to grab attention and engage a broad range of public audiences. Download, print or share them now – in any one of 16 languages.

The COVID-19 pandemic is having devastating global impacts – but it’s important to remember that the spread of the Corona Virus is directly linked to the actions and behaviours of individuals.
Encouraging individuals to change their behaviours is a challenging communications task. Information alone is not enough. People must want to change and they must believe they are capable of that change. And first they must engage with the communication medium.
One of the key elements of the campaign is about ensuring that the messages are more about what you can do for others, than what you can do for yourself. “Altruism is a strong motivator” says Director Robert Inglis, “People are looking for ways they can help. Sharing relevant, relatable messages is one of the ways they can.”
The campaign uses comic characters to create strong identification amongst readers, and thanks to the incredible support of individuals and institutions around the world, has been translated into numerous languages.
You can download them for printing here, or simply save them and share them on your social media channels. The posters are published with a Creative Commons licenses so you are free to copy, print and share them (non-comercially and provided no changes are made).
If you are able to offer translation to a language we don’t yet have covered – please email us on the contact form.
