COVID-19 (C-19) is an infectious disease caused by a recently discovered coronavirus, causing respiratory infections. Globally it has infected 2.7 million and 191,962 deaths as of 24 April 2020. As of 22 April 2020, the Ministry of Public Health, Government of Afghanistan’s data shows that 1,111 people across 33 provinces in Afghanistan are now confirmed to have C-19. Some 162 people have recovered and 41 people have died. Among the Afghanistan National Police (ANP), the MoIA General Directorate of Health has confirmed that as of 22 April 2020 the number of affected police personnel include 25 positive confirmed C-19 cases, of which 3 have deceased and 8 have recovered, while 14 are under treatment. A further 213 police personnel were quarantined with 79 of them completing 14-day isolation showing no further symptoms and returning to work, while 134 are still under isolation at home. Under a worst-case scenario (i.e. with a very high transmission of C-19 among police personnel in Afghanistan), the MoIA expects 40,000 police to become infected over a period of 8 months (May – December, 2020) with at least 600 severe cases in need of treatment at hospitals at a given point of time in the next 8 months.

The MoIA lacks adequate facilities in dealing with COVID-19. Thus, it requires support to prevent, detect and treat ANP personnel who may be infected by the C-19. This Project is therefore designed as the an emergency response and support project to the MoIA to implement its Strategy for Combating COVID-19. This includes the emergency support to respond to the initial immediate and urgent medical needs to diagnose and treat the affected police personnel as well as ensure their day to day safety through adequate & available protective equipment and maintenance of hygiene; and raising awareness on preventive measures to be adopted to support infection prevention and control of the COVID-19 virus among the police in Afghanistan.

As a result of this project’s interventions, the MoIA will ensure the wellbeing and recovery of all affected police personnel in Afghanistan to ensure the entire police force of Afghanistan will operate at its maximum capacity, during and after the C-19 pandemic.
