Raising awareness against Covid-19 through comics

Project title

Aumentando a conscientização contra o Covid-19 através dos quadrinhos

Description of initiative

The Exhibition Center of the Hospital Professor Doutor Fernando Fonseca (HFF) had a new exhibition, organized in partnership with the Municipality of Amadora and one of the themes of the exhibition was to raise awareness against Covid-19 through comics. The Amadora City Council intended to raise awareness of measures to prevent contagion with the Covid-19 virus and challenged a group of authors, associated with Amadora BD, to create a set of original illustrations for various billboards throughout the county. These works were based on the recommendations of the Directorate-General for Health. This initiative aimed to strengthen public health, through constant awareness of the local community. The presence of comics in the public spaces of the Municipality of Amadora was an element that facilitated the transmission of these messages addressed to the community.
