We have conducted assessments in Kabul in the east, and Herat in the west, and are supporting the Ministry of Health in COVID-19 specific activities.
We have recently completed preparedness activities in the Afghanistan-Japan Hospital, the referral hospital for COVID-19 cases in the capital. These activities focused on training, reorganisation of patient flow, and triage. In the COVID-19 treatment centre in Herat, MSF’s support has also focused on infection prevention and control.
In our existing projects around the country, infection prevention and control and all other necessary preventive measures have been implemented to protect against transmission inside our facilities.
