All MSF’s projects in Myanmar have completed implementation of preparations for COVID-19. These include training in infection prevention and control and the use of personal protective equipment, installing extra handwashing stations, and provisions for staff quarantines.
Our patients, people living with HIV or suffering chronic disease, have been received additional medication supplies. We are also undertaking a social engagement campaign on Facebook focusing on COVID-19 prevention and health promotion.
Meanwhile MSF is also working closely with the Ministry of Health and Sports, including training staff, and has provided educational materials as well as hygiene and personal protection items.
