This project works to safeguard the provision of critical reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health services for women and girls. This project supports national health system efforts in the communities where they are working to help prevent and mitigate the negative consequences of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Bangladesh, Kenya, Myanmar, and Tanzania. Project activities include: (1) promoting preventive measures to slow and stop the spread of COVID-19 in target communities; (2) procuring and distributing hygiene materials to vulnerable households and key services providers/institutions for prevention of COVID-19; (3) providing training and equipping public health systems and service providers to deliver gender-responsive COVID-19 prevention, detection, treatment and surveillance services; and (4) facilitating the protection of essential health, nutrition and sexual reproductive health and rights services, including sexual gender-based violence, and micronutrient powder supplementation. This project expects to provide support to 6,312,851 people, of which 1,946,048 are women and adolescent girls in Bangladesh, Kenya, Myanmar and Tanzania.
