According to the bank's website, "the additional financing will provide targeted investments for additional 8 provincial hospitals and 73 district referral hospitals not covered under the original project. It will focus upgrading of hospital clinical care, laboratory, IPC, and human resource capacity to respond to COVID-19 and other public health threats. The proposed project will strengthen surveillance, response, and risk communications capacity for COVID-19 and other epidemic prone diseases nationwide. The additional financing will complement ADB support under the COVID-19 Active Response and Expenditure Support (CARES) Program and the The Responsive COVID-19 Vaccines for Recovery (RECOVER) Project. The additional financing project remains aligned with the outcome of the original project: Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) health system performance with regard to health security improved."
