“Supporting the response to COVID-19 alongside the Community”. Fast & Fair Initiative
The “Supporting the response to COVID-19 alongside the Community” Project contributed to the government's efforts to control the pandemic. The project strengthened outbreak prevention and control measures in selected communities, targeting people in human mobility, LGBTIQ+ individuals, sex workers and indigenous people of the Awa nationality. The project was implemented in partnership with ASOCIACION RIOS (in Spanish), a local NGO with experience in community health work. This project was funded by CARE USA, as part of the Fast & Fair strategy, in response to COVID-19, which objective is to support countries so that the most vulnerable people can access the vaccine and overcome gender-based and other types of barriers that create inequalities regarding access to vaccination and health services.
