Project Details

The long term implications of this pandemic have the potential to cripple affected communities. Once the need for social distancing subsides, we foresee a need for midterm and long term interventions to rehabilitate communities and build resilience to any further incidences.

Expected interventions include:
  • Upgradation of sanitation and hygiene facilities in communities such as low-income schools, Anganwadis, community spaces, hospitals, etc.
  • Health education, screening and awareness generation on WASH behaviours
  • Restoring livelihoods of daily wage earners and marginalized communities
  • Mental health support
  • Identification and skilling of community health volunteers
  • Upgradation of health facilities and infrastructure in government hospitals and public health centres.
  • Support of frontline workers including doctors, nurses, public health workers, sanitation workers, police personnel, etc.
  • Nutrition and education support for children to compensate for losses during periods of isolation or school closure.
  • Upgradation and installation of sanitation and hygiene facilities at public areas with high footfall like Railway stations and Bus stations along with awareness generation.
  • Measures to improve hygiene awareness and practices in high-density habitation like in urban slums
