Health - Disease control of communicable disease - Health system development

Gender Equity and Mainstreaming No gender elements
Description The RETA will provide emergency assistance to members countries in the regiona to strengthen health systems' capacities to prevent and contain outbreaks of SARS contagion over the next few months. The proposed RETA will fill an important gap in financing to meet the SARS epidemic. ADB will work closely with governments, WHO, and other stakeholders, in particular NGOs, to identify the gaps, both quantitatively (how much is needed) and qualitatively (where are the resources needed). It is difficult to estimate the magnitude of the damage the SARS epidemic will cause but the ADB should be prepared to respond quickly and flexibly to the actual and potential damage caused by SARS. In the medium-term, the steps taken to respond to SARS can also improve the capacity of health systems to confront other communicable diseases.
