UN Volunteer with UNICEF Moldova, Polina Listopad, decided to explore innovative solutions in the response to COVID-19. As a professional in IT solutions, she contributed to the regular monitoring of youth and adolescents with the UNICEF IT product U-Report, thus improving data collection and analysis.
Moldova has the third largest community of U-Reporters in Europe and Central Asia region, some 25 thousand young people and adolescents. Recently, UNICEF launched a virtual chatbot to provide speedy answers to questions that young people might have about COVID-19, while also raising their awareness about the harmful effect of fake news, myths and associated stigma.
