Against the backdrop of a severe economic crisis, political turmoil, and an already overwhelmed health system caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the 4th of August tragic blast, vulnerable communities in Lebanon are pushed further into hardship and despair, including the country's Palestine refugee community.
Supporting Palestinian Refugees is a vital component of maintaining peace and stability in a highly uncertain environment. LPDC is working closely with UNRWA, WHO and the Lebanese Government to ensure continued access to health, social and other services, while the immediate humanitarian intervention unfolds.
In this regard, LPDC is supporting multi-partner efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by coordinating an emergency response plan that makes available adequate Isolation Centres, support for hospital care, in an environment in which hospital beds and space in Intensive Care Units have become even more scarce. It is also critical to reinforce measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, through testing, access to healthcare, clean water and sanitation, as well as effective management of suspected and confirmed cases in quarantine and Isolation Centres. This plan complements the national COVID-19 response, especially in light of widespread pre-existing health conditions among refugees and the sub-standard living conditions many of them face.
As part of its support to the Palestinian Refugees’ community in the Camps and Gatherings in Lebanon, the UNDP/LPDC will equip and support several hospitals in Saida, Ain Al Helweh Camp, Bekaa, Tyre and Beddawi areas to increase their capacities to better respond to COVID 19 pandemic.
In this context, UNDP requires the services of Three (3) Biomedical Engineers to provide technical support to the LPDC Covid-19 project.
