District-level Initiatives

District Covid-19 Pandemic Response Plan: Azim Premji Foundation has developed a District COVID-19 Pandemic Response Plan, which brings together experts & practitioners from relevant fields, with a set of guidelines to help Civil Society Organisations focus their response to this unprecedented crisis, amplify efforts and provide adequate support. The document spells out a series of responses and activities, on the humanitarian and health care side, that can guide on the ground work. The District Covid-19 Pandemic Resource Plan can be accessed from here.

COVID-19-PHC Action Group, a voluntary group of public health researchers, practitioners and experts committed to improving preparedness and action in rural primary health care and community settings has created an extremely useful checklist to assess whether our primary health centers – which may soon have to bear the brunt of patients in the days to come – are ready to face the challenge. The Preparedness Checklist for Rural Primary Healthcare is available here.

A team of volunteers from SOCHARA [Rajeev B.R.] and Jan Swasthya Sahyog] [Gajanan Phutke] have prepared a useful set of guidelines for setting community-based quarantine facilities in rural areas specifically where home quarantine is not feasible for several reasons. The step by step process [that is sensitive to the local context and people] to setting the community quarantine facilities is available here.
