Engaging the private sector in Madagascar in the national COVID-19 response

The SHOPS Plus project in Madagascar is supporting the private health sector to become an active partner in the national COVID-19 response. The project is leveraging an ongoing private health facility census to interview facilities about their COVID-19 practices, capacity, and needs. It is incorporating COVID-19 and Gender Based Violence (as a result of COVID-19) content into its existing private provider quality trainings. It's using SMS text messages, flyers, posters, and Facebook group posts to disseminate key messages to private providers. And SHOPS Plus is providing technical assistance to supported banks in managing risk and restructuring loans as needed to minimize the economic fallout of COVID-19.
