SSHAP Practical Approaches;Issue 2

Assessing Key Considerations for Burial Practices, Death and Mourning in Epidemics

Published on 2 April 2020

This Practical Approaches brief highlights key considerations for rapidly appraising burial/funerary practices and beliefs around death/dying during an epidemic.

It provides guidance on the relevant social science knowledge required to adapt epidemic preparedness and response to the local context. By using this tool, an overview of local knowledge, meaning and practice will be gained, which can help inform programming related to death and burial.
