In Honduras, the first reported death from COVID-19 occurred in early March 2020. Within a five-month period, the number of confirmed cases surged to over 60,000 and reported deaths reached nearly 2,000. HP+ is working closely with the government and other partners to ramp up prevention and mitigation measures to save lives and manage the surge of COVID-19 patients who are overwhelming Honduran health facilities. Specially, HP+ works across three of USAID’s strategic pillars to improve COVID-19-related laboratory capacity, surveillance, and case management, with an emphasis on infection prevention and control across the three pillars. HP+ also supports USAID with epidemiological modeling exercises and scenarios to better assess the COVID-19 landscape at the national and subnational level in Honduras and inform evidence-based decision-making processes.
