COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 Response

Center for Social Integrity’s COVID-19 Response Projects in Northern Rakhine aim at supporting the scaling-up of preventive activities in the region. Our aim is to protect the population by making them aware of the risks, and by promoting preventive measures that can stop the propagation of the virus. The projects support the preparedness capacity of vulnerable communities living in conflict-affected and internet-blackout areas, by providing COVID-19 awareness, preventative information, and outbreak response guidelines; distributing important hygiene and protection items (soap, hand-washing buckets, and reusable masks); empowering community leaders to raise awareness and respond to potential cases of COVID-19, including guiding them on how to set up safe quarantine spaces in order to prevent, suppress and interrupt potential outbreaks of the virus.
