This aim of this project is to sustainably strengthen the health system in Sudan for epidemic preparedness and response addressing the needs of the COVID-19 pandemic in the the country.

Since there was a clear need to continue providing support to a COVID-19 response in Sudan that addresses the ongoing crisis and provides elements of a sustainable strengthening of the health system and epidemiological preparedness and response, a top-up of €10.2 million to this project was approved in September 2020.

1) Governance and coordination to control and minimize the spread of COVID-19 are strengthened;

3) Capacity to isolate and manage cases is strengthened;

4) Risk communication and WASH measures at health facility level are strengthened;
