Ensuring primary healthcare while tackling the COVID-19 pandemic
Integrate Health has taken aggressive action in an effort to lessen the impact of the virus in Togo, by working closely with the Ministry of Health in the coordination of activities and by providing critical technical expertise and financial support. We are supporting their efforts to ensure the continuity of primary healthcare services in the communities they serve, while surging their capacity.
The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented health crisis of global scale that is putting some of the world’s most advanced and well-resourced healthcare systems under enormous strain. To countries with already fragile health systems, the pandemic poses an additional concern, disproportionately affecting the poor and vulnerable.
In Togo, Integrate Health has created a community-led low-cost model which combines professional community health workers with improved care in public clinics to make high-quality primary healthcare available to the general population.
We are supporting the organisation’s efforts to minimize the impact of coronavirus in the country, while ensuring the continuity of primary healthcare services in the communities they serve and avoid deaths from preventable diseases.
By working closely with the Ministry of Health in the coordination of activities and by providing critical technical expertise and financial support, Integrate Health’s pandemic response could be an incredible opportunity to accelerate and intensify their goal of strengthening the national primary health system across Togo.
