Cross Cultural Learning on How to Deal with Corona Crisis
The project, funded by FNNZ, aims to:
1. Strengthen resilience at the individual, community and national level to promote the well-being of people in times of crisis.
2. Develop strategies or solutions that enable people, communities, health professionals and policymakers to reduce the impact of the Corona crisis on health and well-being.
