Description and results


The project aims to decrease coronavirus (COVID-19) related mortality and morbidity of populations, especially for those experiencing marginalization and/or vulnerability in targeted Latin America and the Caribbean countries. Project activities include: (1) ensuring equitable distribution of personal protective equipment for occupational health and safety of health care workers; (2) providing training to health care workers on up-to-date COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment; and (3) providing technical assistance for national COVID-19 testing and surveillance systems to governments.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced coordination and efficiency of national and regional response operations on COVID-19; (2) decreased human-to-human transmission, including reducing secondary infections among close contacts and healthcare workers, and preventing transmission amplification events; (3) effective and early identification, isolation, and care for patients early, including providing optimized care for infected patients; and (4) improved communication of critical risk and event information to all communities, and counter misinformation.
