Project Name COVID-19 Emergency Program
Project Detail The objective of the Program is to assist the Government of South Africa in its efforts to combat the outbreak of COVID-19, minimize the loss of human life, and reduce social and economic losses. The Program will enable recovery of economic and social activity through (i) procurement and deployment of critical healthcare goods and services, which will enhance South Africa’s disease detection and diagnosis, infection prevention and control capacities; and (ii) increasing the amount of social grants paid out to beneficiaries to strengthen the country’s social assistance measures during the outbreak period, which will assist in reducing economic losses, particularly for the vulnerable population. Project Description The Program consists of two components: Healthcare and Social Safety Net. Healthcare: This component aims to contain, detect, and counteract the spread of the epidemic. Measures to be undertaken include: (i) screening and testing programs; (ii) creating isolation facilities for those who cannot self-isolate; (iii) procurement of Personal Protective Equipment; (iv) reinforcement of hospital facilities required for treatment of infected individuals; (v) ventilator distribution; and (vi) medication. Social Safety Net: This component focuses on increasing the amount of grants to vulnerable individuals who have limited capacity to withstand loss in earnings caused by the economic lockdown. Additional beneficiaries will receive social grants through the COVID-19 Social Distress grant scheme.
