To prevent, detect and respond to the threat posed by COVID-19 and strengthen national systems for public health preparedness.
The proposed AF will build on the parent project’s design and scale up the World Bank’s support to the government’s efforts to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Specifically, the proposed AF will finance the
procurement of key medical equipment, laboratories test kits, and medical supplies.
Component 2: Strengthening Overall Healthcare Services and Clinical Capacity for Emergency COVID-19 Response (US$1.85 million IDA credit and US$564,000 PEF AF). The overall design and scope of this component remain the same; it supports the strengthening of selected health facilities and establishment and equipping of quarantine and treatment centers to be able to provide the best care possible for people who become ill. The PEF AF finances the procurement of a computed tomography (CT) scanner to improve the clinical management of complications of COVID-19 confirmed cases. More importantly, CT scanner is a general-purpose and widely used tool that can support the cost-effective clinical management of innumerable other conditions. In Djibouti, there is only one functioning CT scanner in the Pelletier Hospital in Djibouti city. The additional CT will be placed in the Balbala hospital, located in a neighborhood in the capital where many of the vulnerable live, with a catchment population of 500,000.
Components 3 and 4 remain the same, and the AF funds will not go to these components.
