Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the Bank’s website, the objective of this project is to prevent, detect and respond to the COVID-19 disease outbreak in Senegal.

The objectives of the project and activities included are fully in line with the COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Program (SPRP) using the Multiphase Programmatic Approach (MPA), approved by the Board on April 2, 2020, and the vaccines AF to the SPRP approved on October 13, 2020. This project supports the implementation of the National COVID-19 Emergency and Response Plan endorsed by the Ministry of Health and Social Action and has three components:

Component 1. Emergency COVID-19 Response (US$145.5 million). Under this component, the MoHSA is strengthening disease surveillance and epidemiological capacity for early detection and confirmation of cases and active contact tracing as well as health system strengthening, social and financial support to households, COVID-19 vaccine acquisition and distribution and pharmacovigilance and patient safety.

Component 2. Community Engagement and Risk communication (US$5 million). This component aims to ensure effective risk communication and community/citizen engagement to raise public awareness and knowledge on prevention and control of COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccination among the general population.

Component 3. Implementation Management and Monitoring (US$ 3.5 million). The proposed project will be managed by the MoHSA's Project Coordination Unit (PCU). The project will share the cost of running the PCU along with other projects funded by the World Bank (REDISSE, ISMEA). Details of the implementation arrangements are described in section III. Implementation Arrangements.
