COVID-19 - Maintains

  • COVID-19 is an extreme shock to social systems, with direct and secondary impacts in Maintains’ focus sectors of education, gender, health, disaster risk financing, nutrition, governance, and social protection.

    We are adapting our established research programme to respond to the pandemic, and undertaking new work that will focus on how best to support governments to respond, adapt and recover from COVID-19. With teams on the ground in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Kenya, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, and Uganda, Maintains is providing technical assistance as well as undertaking rapid research to capture vital learnings in real time.

    To find out how we can work together please email maintains@opml.co.uk.
