While under component one support to participating countries would focus on immediate, emergency containment and mitigation activities to respond to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreaks and resurgent waves, support under Components two and three of the program will further strengthen the capacity of countries to deal with the reemergence and emergence of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and other pathogens of animal origin. It will also support multi-sector efforts to improve Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). The third component is the supporting national and sub-national, prevention and preparedness. The component will finance requirements of Infrastructure (observatories, reference labs, clinical capacity), equipment, reagents and commodities, analytical and assessment capacity with trained local capacities embedded in National Primary Human and Animal Health Systems. The fourth component is the community engagement and risk communication. This component will support rebuilding community and citizen trust that can be eroded during crises. It will also include community-based animal disease surveillance and early warning networks. It will support the establishment at the community level of early warning systems to support a robust emergency reporting and feedback system against notifiable diseases. Finally, the fifth component is the implementation management and monitoring and evaluation.
