Mali: Review of the emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Mopti region
Mali has been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the strengthening of patient management protocols and epidemiological surveillance, our teams were able to implement a nine-month program to support health centers in Mopti region.
This project, funded by USAID, contributed to an improvement in the health conditions of the displaced populations, but also to preventing the spread of the virus in the area thanks to the awareness of the populations to prevent infections.
The displaced populations present on the sites have seen their sanitary conditions improved in order to prevent the spread of the virus.
Here are some of the actions that have been carried out in recent months:
- 100 hand washing devices have been distributed to schools in the Mopti school districts
- 16 health centers benefited from rehabilitation work in water, hygiene and sanitation
- 2 002 displaced households were provided with a hygiene kit (hand washing device, liquid soap, detergent and bleach)
A holistic response to address the COVID-19 pandemic in Mali
Première Urgence Internationale has been intervening in Mali since 2013. Our aim is to provide a more holistic response to populations. This is done through interventions in the field of health and nutrition and the integration of new sectors such as protection and water, hygiene and sanitation.
The quality of its programmes, its knowledge of the field and its good local acceptance enable Première Urgence Internationale to intervene in areas where humanitarian access is limited.
With your help, our teams can ensure the continuity of the projects that have been set up and continue to meet the needs of vulnerable populations in Mali. You can support our actions by making a donation here.
All of these activities were implemented with financial support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
