Indonesia: COVID-19 Emergency Response

Sovereign (Public) Project | 54150-001 Status: Approved

The proposed activities largely emergency medical supplies and other initial support required for dealing with the COVID-19 crisis to be financed by the APDRF align with WHO's Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan for COVID-19 and the Indonesian Preparedness Plan for COVID-19. Specifically, the Indonesian Preparedness Plan for COVID-19 emphasizes the need for clinical management particularly of severe and critical cases; infection prevention and control among health workers and the general population; and specimen management and laboratory confirmation to help reduce the spread of the infection.

Description

The proposed activities largely emergency medical supplies and other initial support required for dealing with the COVID-19 crisis to be financed by the APDRF align with WHO's Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan for COVID-19 and the Indonesian Preparedness Plan for COVID-19. Specifically, the Indonesian Preparedness Plan for COVID-19 emphasizes the need for clinical management particularly of severe and critical cases; infection prevention and control among health workers and the general population; and specimen management and laboratory confirmation to help reduce the spread of the infection.

ADB's emergency response will help alleviate the government's financial, logistic, and other constraints to meet the immediate needs and delivery of appropriate medical services. Urgent support is needed to: (i) improve testing capacity (test kits and polymerase chain reaction machines); (ii) reduce risk of transmission to health workers (personal protective equipment); and (iii) improve treatment capacity of those in severe and critical care (ventilators). Other needs may be identified as the situation evolves in coming weeks. Recognizing the unpredictable nature of the situation, flexibility is required in designing assistance, along with close coordination with various sources and partners.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The number of confirmed cases has accelerated over the past few weeks, now indicating community transmission. The confirmed cases jumped from 2 on 12 March to 309 on 19 March, with exponential increases in number of confirmed cases expected in the coming weeks. This has put considerable stress on the health system, particularly hospitals in crowded cities and rural provinces with more stress expected as the numbers rapidly increase. Health workers, who are in close contact with the increasing number of patients seeking treatment, are increasingly contracting the disease. Resources are needed to strengthen the monitoring of the spread and characteristics of the virus, identification and management of severe cases, prevention of onward transmission of the virus, alleviation of strains on health-care services, communicating continuously with the public and stakeholders, and the reduction overall social and economic impact. The government needs support to augment its capacity and constrained financial and human resources to ensure effective and timely life-saving efforts, and respond to the disastrous impact of the COVID-19.
