The World Bank has approved $9 million in financing to bolster efforts to combat the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic in Gabon.
The COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Project aims to strengthen the health system, specifically activities focused on prevention, detection, and case management in accordance with Gabon’s COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan.
This support includes the provision of equipment and supplies, such as medicalized ambulances, personal protective equipment, and diagnostic kits for laboratory screening. It will also finance training for health personnel and the establishment of two new COVID-19 diagnostic centers.
World Bank Country Manager for Gabon, Alice Ouedraogo said, “This project is part of the World Bank’s ongoing long-term commitment to strengthening health systems in Gabon, including the project currently being developed on basic health care. It complements the efforts of other development partners as part of a coordinated response,” explains.”
