In the world, all countries are facing the pandemic of covid19. It was started on January 2020 in Wuhan, China. This was spreading out into all countries including Indonesia. In the last report (April, 18, 2021), there are 140,322,903 reported cases and 3,003,794 death cases (2.1%), globally. In Indonesia, there are 1,604,348 reported cases and 43,424 death cases (2.7%) (Beranda |

There were many efforts to solve this pandemic by many countries such as diagnostic improvement, health service management, health protocol introduction, and vaccination as the last effort. Vaccination started December 2020. In the last report (April 19, 2021), in global, there are 494,377,449 vaccination reported on first dosage out of 7,845,261,000 targeted people (6.3%). In Indonesia, there are 10,801,563 vaccination reported on first dosage out of 242,968,342 people (4.4%) (covid19 vaccination – Bing).

To support all those efforts need to improve the people digital literacy against infodemic. Infodemic attacked many aspects and people. In the beginning of covid19, there were misinformation related the belief on covid19, such as covid19 was conspiration and some traditional could prevent covid19.  Those misinformation are still running until today. On covid19 vaccination, there were another misinformation such as vaccination microchip, halal and haram issue, conspiration misinformation, death cause of vaccination (vaccination safety). 

On the other hand, routine immunization was disrupted at the beginning of the pandemic. It will impact maternal and child death based on mathematical modeling using spectrum software. There are 28,300 maternal death and 446,600 child deaths additionally in the low middle-income country (Robertson, et al, 2021).  Those predictions can happen if there is a lack of facing this pandemic situation. If we can control, child and maternal death averted will be a successful effort. The government of Indonesia (GOI) has established a communication team to deal with misinformation through COVID19 risk communication and community engagement team. To optimize the result, the RCCE team should use many approaches, such as fogg based model (FBM) intervention. In the FBM, there are motivational, ability, and prompts which are contributed to people’s behavior.  In infodemic areas, this approach needs to be tested before scaling up to the national level.

To monitor those situation and support on information, education and counselling program, there will be a survey for some areas in Indonesia. 

To measure: 

  1. People’s knowledge, attitude, practice, and belief (KAPB) on COVID19 perception
  2. People’s knowledge, attitude, practice, and belief (KAPB) on COVID19 vaccination perception and acceptance
  3. People’s knowledge, attitude, practice, and belief (KAPB) on routine immunization perception and acceptance
  4. The intervention of FBM will contribute to people’s KAPB on infodemic intervention (comparison of pre, mid, and post enumeration). 

This survey is longitudinal prospective methods (pre, mid, and post-intervention). There are 3 intervention cities (Jakarta, Makassar, and Medan). To control the result, there are 3 cities candidates based on the prioritization calculation (Aceh, Bandung, and Kendari). The prioritization consideration is based on characteristic area, routine immunization coverage, digital infodemic situation, and COVID19 prevalence situation. This survey is a collaboration between the Jenewa consortium (Yayasan Jenewa Madani Indonesia, Perkumpulan Sinergi Sehat Indonesia, DNAS, and Leuser Andalas Community Development), and Mafindo.
