About the Project
The Tongogara Refugee Camp Action for Covid-19 Emergency Response and Preparedness (TRACE) program will reach a total of 77,000 people in Chipinge District over 6 months with a focus on People of Concern at Tongogara Refugee Camp and its host communities. A multi-sectoral and integrated approach to Covid-19, TRACE will support upgrades to existing water systems, water points, and hand washing stations as a core component of Infection Prevention Control. The program will address key gaps in health-service provision, equipping both Isolation Centre and District Hospital with key treatment equipment and PPE. A gender-sensitive and child-protective environment will be fostered by the project, reinforced by Social Behavior Change Communications strategies to enhance protection of women and girls.
