The Corona Virus (COVID-19) is spreading worldwide and has now also reached individual partner countries and Europe. We’re committed to doing our part locally and globally to help reduce the spread of the corona virus. This includes implementing hygiene and social distancing measures in our HQ and all our project offices; establishing remote working opportunities among our local and global teams; and partnering with donors and local public health ministries and organisations as they look to implement healthcare measures for virus prevention, detection and treatment.
EPOS and the entire GOPA Group have adopted a responsive hygiene and social-distancing COVID-19 policy for headquarter and project offices. This is reviewed regularly and updated as needed given the rapidly evolving situation. The policy can be viewed here: https://gopa-group.org/node/11616
We’ve also established the infrastructure and network for colleagues to ‘work-from-home’ wherever possible, with guidelines and robust communication systems to ensure work continues on as normal in these dynamically changing times.
Several of our project teams have been requested by national public health ministries and/or donor agencies to give guidance and actively join the fight against COVID-19 and organization of health services strengthening as the virus spreads. We will share these activities with you as they develop.
We are working hard to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, and ask you to help us by following recommended hygiene and social distancing measures too.
