COVID on the Breadline
What does COVID-19 mean for the 750 million people who live below the poverty line? Will they be hit harder by the pandemic – or by the lockdowns designed to slow its spread? Are there alternative measures which could avoid an epidemic of hunger and diseases of poverty? This is one of a series of films and public health messages we are making about COVID-19. It examines these questions through the eyes of those living on the breadline, and organisations like UNICEF who work with them.

Our coronavirus appeal
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is a worldwide health emergency. Many African and South Asian communities will be among the least prepared to cope with its impact. Picturing Health can help by using the power of film to distribute vital information to reduce the spread of coronavirus and save lives. You can help us to achieve that.
Picturing Health are creating public health information films to promote behaviour that can reduce the spread of coronavirus in Africa. We are also making films to contribute to the policy debate to help guide the response to the pandemic. These projects have a simple shared goal: to save lives.
How does coronavirus (COVID-19) spread? What are the symptoms? Who is at risk? How can you protect yourself and your family? This short animation answers these questions.
Picturing Health uses the power of film and art to promote better health globally.
