The inequitable burdens of COVID-19 continue to devastate health systems and economies globally. After two decades in decline, extreme poverty is rising. The vulnerable communities that we serve are more challenged now than ever before.
As COVID-19 variants exacerbate the global crisis, IMA World Health leads health interventions in the phased, multi-sectoral COVID-19 response of the Corus International family. IMA World Health’s COVID-19 efforts build on our extensive experience in outbreak response, including during the last four Ebola outbreaks, and deep partnerships with ministries of health as well as faith-based health care networks.
Through our local partnerships, IMA World Health has been:
- Providing information, technical assistance, equipment and supplies to implement infection prevention and control (IPC) in health facilities;
- Supporting community surveillance and contact tracing efforts;
- Developing and disseminating informative messaging to the public on the virus and safety measures they can take;
- Strengthening the capacity and resilience of health systems and communities to cope with future shocks.
Consistent across our programming, IMA World Health’s COVID-19 response is context-driven and locally led.
