  • autorenew Implementation (Status)

Amref Health Africa Uganda and Healthy Entrepreneurs-HE partner to support districts, health workers and communities along the Northern Transport Corridor to respond effectively to the virus. We aim to mobilize and build the capacity of a network of Village Health Teams (VHTs) and health workers along the northern transport corridor (Luwero, Nakasongola, Kiryandongo and Amuru to Elegu border) to scale up the efforts for increased awareness, prevention, control and management of COVID-19 and to support continuity of SRH and other related medical services. The intervention is proposed for a period of six months, working with ~4000 VHTs and ~132 health workers (HWs) from selected ~33 health facilities. The activities include: A) capacity building of VHTs for community mobilization, B) deployment of a dedicated and free surveillance support line for health workers (HWs), C) development and distribution of contextualized communication materials for Districts, VHTs, HWs and the general public, and dissemination of MOH continuity of essential services guidelines, D) procurement and distribution of PPEs for HWs and E) support coordination and technical support for districts.
