It is our collective actions now that will make all the difference to our unseen heroes-Truck Drivers.
TOGETHER, We must protect these unseen vulnerable workers from COVID-19. We must provide essential health services and support for their COVID-19 vaccination on an urgent basis.
We as the secretariate of AASTHA (Asia-Africa Supply Chain Transform Health Alliance) hosted by People to People Health Foundation (PPHF) and Kspire Solutions committed to ensure access to the COVID-19 vaccine and protect truck drivers from this pandemic. We aim to mobilize support to vaccinate 1 million truck drivers in the country.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of India is commendably rolling out rapid response activities throughout the country. To alleviate the larger impact of the outbreak in India, the People to People Health Foundation (PPHF) is supporting Government’s efforts to scale up its response to the COVID-19. PPHF is responding to COVID-19 with support from our partners and directly working with the Government at the National and State level on:
- Strengthening the health system infrastructure by providing life-supporting medical equipment and supplies to COVID-19 hospitals and Quarantine centers;
- Supporting healthcare workers on infection prevention and control; and
- Supporting hygiene promotion activities in the community.
