Given the increased number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Colombia, we are working closely with healthcare authorities in the municipalities where we have ongoing project activities.
To that end, we are currently participating in outpatient triage in Tibú hospital and training medical personnel in the use of protective materials. We have installed handwashing stations at hospital entrances, and we are also providing advice on setting up patient zones in hospitals to process and refer people for treatment for COVID-19, and evaluating the needs of hospitals that will likely receive COVID-19 patients.
Meanwhile we continue to monitor patients with chronic diseases, and we are continuing our mental health and sexual and reproductive health activities with Venezuelan and Colombian communities that do not have access to healthcare.
Lastly, we are focusing a large part of our efforts on health promotion and prevention activities in towns and neighborhoods through different community outreach strategies and in the media.
