Adapting to New Normal: Remote Focus Group Discussions During COVID-19

Type:

Research

Organization:

Turkish Red Crescent

Within the scope of Kızılaykart programmes, Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) are being conducted by the households themselves or Turkish Red Crescent Community Centers where available. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and its related health risks, face to face FGDs could not be carried out as usual. Therefore, to enable a quick response to the pandemic situation, the current modality for FGDs has been adapted to minimise the impact of COVID-19 and to ensure the uninterrupted continuity of monitoring activities.
