The proposed operation aims to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in supply of medical equipment and supplies as well as training of targeted frontline responders and provision of handwashing facilities. The proposed project is in response to the Government of Zimbabwe's request submitted to the Bank in March 2020 and it is consistent with the Bank's and the GoZ's efforts to address the enormous COVID-19-related challengesfacing the country, particularly in urban and peri-urban areas.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AfDB
The Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), which is administered by the Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (CRMU), is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a dispute resolution dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the AfDB complied with its policies to prevent environmental and social harms. You can submit a complaint electronically by emailing email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and/or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can learn more about the IRM and how to file a complaint at https://www.afdb.org/en/independent-review-mechanism/.
