Knowledge, attitudes and practices of volunteers and urban populations in the face of the pandemic of the new Coronavirus. The case of the Metropolitan Area of Port-au-Prince

The research of Mr. Lukinson Jean, PhD in Sociology (University of Limoges, 2017) aims, on the one hand, to determine what kind of information and «knowledge» the populations and volunteers have, to what extent this information, Depending on their sources and modes of dissemination, influence both the attitudes and health behaviours of the actors. On the other hand, it will determine whether there is a gap between attitudes as “beliefs” and health behaviours. Finally, it will provide a description of the ways in which working conditions are perceived and occupational risks during an outbreak.
