IFC has partnered with Imperial, a provider of integrated market access and logistics solutions with a focus on key industries including healthcare, automotive and chemicals amongst other, to support the development of a program to manufacture and deploy modular healthcare units to provide COVID-19 screening, testing and treatment, as well as other healthcare services to patients in densely populated, low-income urban areas in Sub-Saharan Africa, where access to healthcare is limited. IFC will be selecting the target pilot countries together with Imperial, identifying country-specific needs and approaches that can be scaled up through partnerships with private healthcare service operators and governments.
In response to the limited availability of healthcare infrastructure in Sub-Saharan Africa, the Project aims to expand COVID-19 screening, testing and treatment and, overall, increase access to quality healthcare services. Through the development of additional healthcare infrastructure, the Project also seeks to increase employment opportunities for healthcare professionals, a substantial portion of this is expected to be female.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
