South Asia Regional Project to Strengthen Community Resilience to Covid-19

Program Year: 2021

As part of an EU-funded initiative, The Asia Foundation is implementing a project to address the immediate threat and longer-term implications of Covid-19 for the most vulnerable populations of Bangladesh, India, Maldives, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The goal is to provide greater awareness of health risks and preventive measures, better access to support services, reduced communal tensions and stigma, and greater responsiveness of public authorities to the voice and interests of the poor, women and girls, minorities, and other marginalized populations.

Activities include increasing awareness of safe health and hygiene practices, improving access to timely, reliable information on Covid-19, enhancing communication between public health and other government agencies and vulnerable communities, and improving policy measures for longer-term Covid-19 resilience.
