Project background 

The EU-IGAD COVID-19 Response project aims at supporting the efforts of the Ministry of Health and immigration/border authorities to mitigate and control the spread of COVID 19 while enabling the continuity of trade and cross border movements especially movement of vulnerable populations and goods, but also humanitarian support.

Integrating screening and triage facilities in existing border services will help to ensure this continuity through the physical separation of suspected and confirmed COVID-19 cases from other patients. Such measures will enable existing border facilities to remain functional through effective triage, access control, screening, isolation and separation for treatment. 

Through this project, the Ministry of Health will benefit from the increased access to health care and socio-economic support for vulnerable groups as well as ensuring essential health services and systems are in place at the borders which are a part of the critical supply chains are safe for trade and are in line with the region’s immediate and longer-term response priorities for managing the risks of transmission.

EU-IGAD COVID-19 Response: funded by the European Union, managed by UNOPS, coordinated by IGAD and implemented by GIZ, IOM, TMEA, UNICEF and UNOPS
