COVID-19 Response │ Brief # 03 │ 10 August 2020
UNICEF’s Contribution to the Response:
With around-the-clock efforts, UNICEF Afghanistan remains a frontline organization responding to combat COVID-19, in addition to continuing most of its regular programming across the country. In collaboration with relevant governmental counterparts, UNICEF also supports the development of guidelines, tools and standard operating procedures to enhance resiliency within the Government of Afghanistan. As a lead and co-lead agency of clusters and sub-clusters, the organization plays a key role to ensure the proper and timely coordination among authorities, inter-cluster working groups, other UN agencies, and civil society organizations (CSOs) at national and provincial levels.
