This project aims to reduce mortality rates among pregnant women, newborns and children under five in Haiti by supporting four healthcare facilities in providing obstetrics and neonatal emergency services. This project provides additional funds in response to immediate needs to fight the coronavirus (COVID-19). Project activities include: 1) reinforcing epidemiological surveillance systems in order to enable early detection of cases and to prevent further spreading; 2) reinforcing prevention and control measures in both hospital and community settings, and adapting routine care services as needed; 3) raising awareness about the pandemic progression and the public health measures to be taken by the public and health workers; and 4) reinforcing coordination with government health response measures to address the pandemic.
