La Chronique N°135 – June 2020

COVID-19: Find out in La Chronique of June 2020, our report on how Première Urgence Internationale has adapted its activities and put in place adequate health measures to cope with the pandemic, while ensuring the continuity of activities and essential care against other common pathologies that are just as deadly (Ebola, Measles, Cholera) on all its missions. “To maintain our humanitarian response during an epidemic, we first need to ensure that our teams, in particular medical staff, are well protected
and follow preventive measures, so that the risks of spreading this epidemic are not worsened,” explains Timothée Le Guellec, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene consultant for Première Urgence Internationale.

In Ile-de-France region of France, mobile clinics have been set up to facilitate access to health care for the most destitute people. The aim was to raise awareness of the virus among the people living in squats and slum settlements so they can recognise the symptoms, and to help slow the spread of the virus through detection and, if necessary, diagnosis.
