Abstract

In the current Covid-19 pandemic, disease perception, etiology and the understanding of spreading risks influence the way each person reacts toward the pandemic and its associated risks. In Cameroon, recent research by anthropologists "on the spot" shows that the population are comparing Covid-19 to malaria and dengue fever, and see the disease as a fever transmitted by external agents, such as mosquitos. Our project research objective is to document, collect and understand, through a participatory research approach, Cameroon populations' experiences in a pandemic period regarding the evolution of the situation (state of emergency, reduction of individual freedoms, partial or total lockdown, end of lockdown, etc.). The methodology used in this project is innovative and ses digital tools to collect data from participants. A smartphone application will be used to complement qualitative surveys using semi-structured interviews. Daily and weekly variables will be measured to collect individual and social habits and practices, through a several months period. We want to understand how individual mobility is negotiated in a context of health risk as well as the forms of socialization which appear or persist.
