In Argentina, MSF is offering technical support and advice to a range of health authorities. This has included the design of protocols and patient flow alongside implementation of infection prevention and control measures, in health structures, alternative treatment structures, and supporting staff in aged care homes.
In Córdoba in central Argentina, MSF is providing specific technical support to the province's Emergency Operations Committee working group for enclosed structures (which includes homes for the elderly, hemodialysis units and prisons). MSF is also involved in training for staff.
In the capital Buenos Aires, MSF is collaborating with the secretariats in charge of the response to COVID-19 in the city’s vulnerable neighbourhoods. Positive case numbers are growing rapidly in these neighbourhoods, so work is underway to establish intervention strategies and priorities, and training needs for staff.
