Preparedness and response to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) at primary healthcare and community level

This document sets out the preparedness and response plan of the Nigerian Primary Health Care System for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). It outlines the planning scenarios, key areas of work and priority activities required for the Primary Health Care (PHC) Sector to quickly scale up its core capacity to prevent, quickly detect, characterize and efficiently respond, in a coordinated manner to the COVID-19 pandemic. These include guidelines for the setup and operationalization of COVID-19 response platforms at the national and state levels, guidelines for the provision of PHC services during the pandemic to minimize transmission in PHCs as well as guidelines for preparedness and response of PHC Centres and communities for COVID-19 case detection and response. The strategy is based on the World Health Organization (WHO) global COVID-19 preparedness plan and the WHO Country Readiness Checklist and has been adapted to suit the Nigerian context.
