The WBG financed Project will be comprised of two components to support the Government’s strategic plan to prevent and respond to the threat posed by COVID-19 and strengthen national systems for public health preparedness. In addition, climate change adaptation and mitigation measures will be incorporated throughout the sub-components, as applicable, and gender issues will be addressed as necessary. The specific activities financed by the Project fit into the overall Government strategy to: (i) rapidly address the COVID-19 emergency by identifying, isolating and providing care for patients with COVID-19 to minimize disease spread, morbidity and mortality; (ii) implement effective communication campaigns for mass awareness and education of the population and guidelines for health care workers to tackle the COVID-19 emergency; and (iii) strengthen the short- and long-run capacity of the public health system to provide intensive care.
The World Bank has classified this project as having Moderate environmental and social risks.
