Wash'Em: Disease Perception

The Disease Perception tool helps you to understand people’s perceptions of the disease you are interested in. Normally, this would be diarrheal diseases, but sometimes you might be trying to prevent outbreaks of something more specific, such as COVID. In particular, this tool helps you explore whether people perceive themselves to be at risk of disease (vulnerability) and how severe the consequences of getting disease are thought to be.
