Tajikistan - Emergency COVID-19 Project (Russian)

The objective of the Emergency COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Project is to prepare and respond to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic in the Republic of Tajikistan. There are four components to the project, the first component being strengthening intensive care capacity. As COVID-19 (Coronavirus) will place a substantial burden on inpatient services, this component will strengthen clinical care capacity by financing specialized intensive care units in selected hospitals, the procurement of medical supplies and equipment, training, and minor refurbishment required to upgrade and expand capacity to treat patients with the most severe manifestations of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). This component includes two subcomponents: infection prevention and control and improving and establishing ICUs. The second component is the multisectoral response planning and community preparedness. This component will support information and communication activities to increase the attention and commitment of government, private sector, and civil society, and to raise awareness, knowledge and understanding among the general population about the risk and potential impact of the pandemic and to develop multi-sectoral strategies to address the pandemic. The third component is the temporary social support for vulnerable household. This component will finance targeted, nutrition-sensitive cash transfers to provide time-limited support to vulnerable households, particularly food insecure households with young children where food price shocks caused by the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic can negatively affect children’s nutrition status and jeopardize the human capital investments being made by the Government of Tajikistan and the WB. This component will finance the cash transfers, and cover the costs of benefit administration, including the cost of expanding capacity of the beneficiary data base. The cash transfers will also provide an opportunity to use accompanying measure to promote optimal nutrition, appropriate hygiene, and preventive health services, as well COVID-19 (Coronavirus) infection prevention messaging (the development of the communication materials will be financed under component two). This component has been designed with potential for scale up in mind, recognizing that further financing may become available following this initial phase of emergency response. Finally, the fourth component is the project implementation and monitoring.
