Situation Report No. 2: 2021 Global COVID-19 Response
OVERVIEW: The novel coronavirus has exposed how connected we are as humanity and just how many of our problems are related.
As part of Corus International's family of organizations responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, IMA World Health leads the health interventions in Corus’ suite of programming. Our COVID-19 response 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 these local partnerships, IMA is
- Providing information, technical assistance, equipment and supplies to implement 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; and
- Strengthening the capacity and resilience of health systems and communities to cope with future shocks.
