Description

Coronavirus emergency pushes hospital’s capacity and their personnel to limit. 16% of hospitals and health centers worldwide do not have handwashing facilities, and the global shortage of protective material for healthcare professionals is one of the great challenges.

For this reason, UNICEF maintains its programs to avoid contagion by supplying to health staff masks, as well as gloves, glasses, protective suits, and medications and hygiene kits to health clinics. Handwashing is the fundamental practice to prevent transmission. However, only 3 out of 5 people worldwide have basic handwashing facilities.

At the same time, information and advice about the coronavirus and its risks, and guidance and advice are being offered to governments, teachers, school leaders and families on the best way to protect yourself and your family, in order to contain the spread of COVID- 19.

Activities

  • Provision of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), which includes protective outerwear, gloves, boots, goggles or a face shield, and a mask, essential medications and COVID-19 detection tests.

Who will benefit?

UNICEF works to provide health personnel with supplies such as gloves, masks, goggles and protective suits; and to ensure that children and their families have soap and water for washing their hands and clear information on how to prevent infections.

For example, with € 5,000 would be possible to distribute 486 surgical masks and 13,574 pairs of gloves.

Project objectives

Prevent diseases that affect children and their families, such as the coronavirus.
