According to the bank document, "the additional financing project will support the implementation of the government's Health Sector Contingency Plan for coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Additional financing expands the overall project scope to encompass a further 19 district and 12 township hospitals requiring immediate investment to upgrade clinical care, infection prevention and control, and human resource capacity for responding to COVID-19 and other emerging disease threats.
These 31 hospitals are located across the country's 14 states and regions, with 24 hospitals strategically selected for their accessibility to ethnic populations. Activities under the additional financing, all of which fall within the scope of the ongoing project, will be consolidated and delivered under a new project output for efficiency in administration and monitoring".

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
