UFVRA Australia response to COVID-19

UFVRA – Australia has responded to COVID-19 through supplying personal protection equipment and education materials for communication of effective quality information so that community members will make the right choices in their personal hygiene, sanitation and social distancing behaviours to prevent, control and respond to COVID-19.

The support took place in Moorooka area where ufvra management teams have been in regular contact with homeless partners and public health system partners. UFVRA initially worked with the Queensland Health Department to print banners, posters and brochures on hand washing and other prevention measures using approved WHO/MOH designs which were distributed during project activities in early March. An urgent request for further support came after recent COVID cases in Sydney. The Australia and health centres have started more vigilant prevention measures at all of their health facilities for suspected cases and COVID-19 testing has commenced. This have appealed to UFVRA and other development partners to assist in meeting the needs for protective equipment and prevention supplies at all of their referral hospitals right down to the local Area. The Personal Protective Equipment supplies will reach 1,121 Health Staff and the materials for Communication messaging and promotion-based will reach an estimated 4,000 in target Homeless areas
