According to the project description, "the overall project impact and outcome will remain the same. The additional financing proposes a new output: emergency response to the COVID-19 outbreak supported (output 4). The main activities under output 4 include
(i) the procurement and distribution of medical supplies and equipment to hospitals at all levels according to need;
(ii) rapid training for frontline health workers on infection prevention and control (IPC), lab testing, and clinical care for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19); and
(iii) some non-pharmaceutical interventions, including risk communications and contact tracing. The activities fall within the scope of outputs 2 and 3 of the ongoing project, but a new output is proposed for effectiveness and efficiency in administration and monitoring."
The project output also aims to support the emergency response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

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.
