The Ibadan location group participated in the COVID-19 Intervention project launched by SI4DEV across the nation to support health care providers in rural primary health care facilities in curbing the spread of the novel Coronavirus disease.

The Ibadan team led by Adefare Tomisin and Obaado Oluwaseun carried out this project at Moniya Primary Health Center and Moniya General Hospital in Akinyele Local government area Ibadan on Wednesday 6th of May 2020.

We proceeded to Moniya General Hospital to set up a WASH station at the front of the hospital by providing a tap bucket, a medium-sized  bowl and a bottle of hand wash soap. We also donated a bottle of hand sanitizer to the office of the PHC coordinator for her support.

The sensitization included the display of an awareness banner showing ways of preventing the spread of the virus at a strategic location in front of the Primary Health Center and distribution of fliers to people at the Health Center, General Hospital and in the Council building of the local government to sensitized them on COVID-19 prevention.
