CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
Response in Europe

 

Ukraine

International Medical Corps is continuing to provide mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS)-related training and counseling services in Ukraine, both directly and in coordination with local partners, through remote means that include telephone and online groups. The team also has delivered printed booklets to its different field sites, enabling those without tablets and smartphones—including older people, who are more vulnerable to the virus—to participate. International Medical Corps and the MHPSS Technical Working group participated in the translation to Ukrainian of How Kids Can Fight COVID-19, a story book for children published by the UN’s Inter-Agency Standing Committee. International Medical Corps has signed an MoU with the Donetsk Ministry of Health to implement a health program that will serve 20 health facilities—19 primary care health centers and one long-term care home. We plan to equip each with handwashing stations, hygiene kits and disinfectants. We will also provide infection prevention and control training for health workers who staff these facilities. In addition, we plan to promote hygiene for all communities in these localities through community outreach workers. We are currently in discussions with Ukraine’s Ministry of Heath to address added COVID-related demand for MHPSS services.
