To enhance the oral cholera vaccination campaign, BBC Media Action has produced a short video public service announcement (PSA) featuring members of the Rohingya community talking about their experiences of receiving vaccinations and the importance of being vaccinated. The PSA also features a song, in a traditional Rohingya style, which highlights the importance of vaccination.
Agencies wishing to use either of these can download the PSA in three versions:
The song (now updated with the dates for OCV round 4, in November 2018) is also available in full and the video transcript in English is also available for download (click the red "Download PDF" button below).
