GLOBE Zika and Education Project Update: Project Receives No-Cost Extension through March 2021
The GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) has received confirmation from the U.S. Department of State on a six-month No-Cost Extension (NCE) for the Zika Education and Prevention Project, with the new completion date of 31 March 2021.
This project began in 2017, and will now be entering its fourth year, focusing on sustainability. The NCE was requested, in part, due to the delays and obstacles caused by the COVID-19 pandemic; therefore, the approach for this extension will be to create virtual training modules so that people can self-train (if they are not able to meet in groups), and can train others in small groups (as allowed by their local governing agencies). In addition, a new module geared towards public health officials will be available to help bridge the gap between data collection and data usage for the project. These training modules will continue to serve as resources for the GLOBE community after the project’s completion.
