Our response to COVID-19
Response to COVID-19
Supporting government in effectively managing the COVID-19 response in India's villages
COVID-19 poses the risk of a potential rural epidemic, due to a distinct set of complexities that face rural India. The government needs active support to effectively implement its COVID-19 response across villages
We are enabling increased use and sharing of data, building frontline health workers' capacity, and ensuring continuity of critical maternal and child health services
- Adapting our existing innovations, such as the AAA Platform, to identify and monitor COVID-19 high-risk individuals
- Technical training on COVID-19 (virtual and on-site)
- Comprehensive checklists and monitoring formats
Robust monitoring and reporting of data are critical for effective planning and implementation of the COVID-19 response. We are supporting the district authorities in creating comprehensive and easy to use monitoring formats for different COVID-19 response activities. Below are two examples of where we are supporting the government.
We incorporated a migrant tracking format as part of the new ASHA diary that will soon be scaled up across Madhya Pradesh. In some areas where we work, we are supporting district administrations in enhancing their migration tracking formats being used currently.
We supported district administrations in Madhya Pradesh by creating monitoring formats for frontline workers for the 15-day “Kill Corona” campaign launched across the state in July 2020. The campaign involved active fever screening across the district, and appropriate management of symptomatic cases.
