- Series of posters (General Message for Host Community (BN), General Message for Host Community (EN), General Message (EN), General Message (MN), Stop Mosquito Breeding (BN), Stop Mosquito Breeding (EN), Stop Mosquito Breeding (MN)) for both refugees and host communities, with advice about bite avoidance and reducing mosquito breeding. Posters are in Bangla and English (for host community) and Burmese and English (for refugees).

- FAQs about dengue in English and Bangla (again, not for distribution, but to help field staff and volunteers have conversations)

The media products are based on core messages developed by the risk communication task force which have been endorsed by the Cox's Bazar civil surgeon's office.

The audio materials and posters are part of an ongoing series of multimedia outputs being produced by BBC Media Action and Translators without Borders to enhance the range and quality of tools available to information hubs, listener groups and other community-facing information services within the Rohingya emergency response. They form part of the common service for community engagement and accountability, which is delivered in partnership with Action Against Hunger and UNOPS with funding from EU Humanitarian Aid and the UK Department for International Development.
