Understanding the impact of COVID-19 among most vulnerable groups in Rohingya and the host communities in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh : research report on work package 1
The Forcibly Displaced Myanmar Nationals (FDMN) in refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar (Bangladesh), are one of the largest refugee populations in the world (860,000 people). This report is based on Phase-1 research which investigates existing knowledge, attitudes and practices of COVID-19 and its impacts on the FDMN community and their adjacent host community. Owing to existing conservative views in both communities, the primary cause of COVID-19 was reported to be religious/act of God. Primary data showed a gap in knowledge regarding COVID-19 vaccines. The study provides details of major economic, social, and health impacts, exacerbated by pre-existing vulnerabilities.
