Counterpart’s COVID-19 preparedness and response activities and interventions are informed by our Inclusive Social Accountability (ISA) framework, which emphasizes building accountable systems and ensuring broad social inclusion. In our health programming, we partner with local CSOs, communities, civic leaders, and public officials at all levels, to further their health priorities while also building capacity to advocate, evaluate, and deliver front line health services.

Counterpart’s Preparedness and Response to COVID-19

  • Community-based public health information dissemination
  • Multi-stakeholder coordination among CSOs, education, faith, and community leaders

  • Training and capacity strengthening of community health workers
  • Local and regional supply chain management
  • Combating food insecurity through nutrition training, commodity distribution, agriculture knowledge and capacity, and community gardens
