To ensure uninterrupted and quality operation of the HIV/HCV/TB/OST projects in the regions of Ukraine during the COVID-19 pandemic, Alliance for Public Health initiates unscheduled deliveries of an extended range of personal protective equipment (PPE), which is vital in the current circumstances. In the course of this and next week, 97 partner civil society organizations and healthcare institutions in all government-controlled regions of Ukraine (125 sites) are going to receive Safe Boxes with:
– 750 liters of antibacterial and disinfecting substances
– 46,300 three-layer protective face masks
– 22,500 medical nitrile gloves (standard and reinforced)
The total of about 70 thousand PPE items have been urgently procured with support of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria amounting almost one million hryvnias. It is worth noting that many of the PPEs procured will be used in the prevention projects, currently supported from the state budget of Ukraine through the Public Health Center of Ukraine.
