According to the Bank´s website, the objective of the project is to strengthen preparedness and response efforts against the COVID-19 pandemic and national systems for public health preparedness in Argentina.
The Argentina COVID-19 Emergency Response Project (P173767 – the Parent Project) was approved for a US$35 million IBRD loan by the World Bank Board of Executive Directors on April 2, 2020 under the COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan (SPRP). The Parent Project is part of a World Bank Multi-Phase Programmatic Approach (MPA) designed to support countries affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Project Development Objective (PDO) is to strengthen preparedness and response efforts against the COVID-19 pandemic and national systems for public health preparedness in Argentina.
The proposed Additional Financing (AF) would support the scale-up of the scope of the parent project with new activities that contribute to the original PDO and enhance the impact of the Parent Project. The AF will cover both the procurement of vaccines and technical assistance (TA). The AF will support health system strengthening activities in a way that ensures an effective COVID-19 response and enables long-lasting resilience.
