Building community and health system resilience during a crisis
As COVID-19 rages on , Pathfinder is working with governments in 17 countries to forge stronger health and social systems that maintain essential sexual and reproductive health services, keep our staff safe, and prevent and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
The heart of our challenge since the onset of the global pandemic has been to continue our critical sexual and reproductive health work in an era where COVID-19 has complicated nearly every decision. Lockdowns, supply shortages, and at times, a fear of going to health facilities due to COVID-19 have challenged the continued provision of sexual and reproductive health care.
But our staff, and the communities they work alongside, are more than up to the challenge. Pathfinder’s targeted response is helping women, girls, and their communities not only survive this crisis but come through it stronger and more resilient.
