OLPS response to the pandemic has been 2-pronged: -
- Community education on COVID 19 prevention measures including hand hygiene, social distancing, and full compliance with MOH COVID 19 mitigation measures.
- Testing and vaccination services at OLPS outpatient health facility
- Enhancing social safety nets by providing emergency food and nutrition to families affected by Covid 19, supporting affected households in dealing with the social and economic impacts of the pandemic at household and community level (supporting households with lost income sources to get back on their feet) etc. – these naturally fitted within the framework used by OLPS to support AIDS orphans, widows, and other vulnerable subgroups within our catchment area
