COVID-19 Rapid Response Projects

In the last quarter of 2020, in partnership with IMA, ACHAP launched Covid-19 Response projects in five countries across Africa in a bid to strengthen the capacity of our member CHAs to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Project implementation was focused on equipping medical facilities with clinical supplies for management of Covid-19, training healthcare workers to manage isolation and treatment areas, sensitization campaigns at community level across the implementation areas, reinforcement of WASH as a preventive measure, providing PPEs across healthcare facilities, printing and distributing IEC materials on COVID-19 preventive measures, and raising awareness through radio spot adverts, social media, and newspaper articles.

Implementation was led by the respective in-country partners; CHAN in Nigeria, CHAM in Malawi, UCMP/ASAD in Burkina Faso, ZACH in Zimbabwe, and AEST in Chad.
