Requirements ~

We are working with Government Hospitals/Community Health Centers/Primary Health Centers in Karnataka where the vulnerable seek healthcare services. It is essential to protect the Doctors, Nurses, Health workers and the Staff at the Hospitals/CHCs/PHCs. Daily wage earners, small business owners and self-employed persons in marginalized communities are facing the brunt of the nationwide lock-down and loss of livelihood. We are supporting them and their families through the provision of ration and basic essentials.

  • Safety of Medical Professionals & Healthcare Staff: Providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Kits to Healthcare workers in Government Hospitals/Community Health Centers/Primary Health Centers to deal with the acute shortage of protective equipment. This is also necessary to ensure that the Doctors/other Health staff does not get infected or transfer the infection to others.
  • Infrastructure at Government Healthcare facilities: Providing portable foot-operated hand-washing stations at Government Hospitals, to mitigate risk of contamination. Sanitizers and Hand washing soaps will be provided for use for caretakers of the patients visiting the hospitals. We will also provide infrastructure for COVID-19 isolation wards as well as hospital equipment on a case to case basis.
  • Community Health Programs: Community-based health care, including outreach and campaigns and outbreak responses in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. While these activities are life-saving, they may also increase the risk of COVID-19 transmission within communities and between health workers and communities.
