USAID and the Alliance support the Government of Peru to adequately respond to COVID- 19 crisis, particularly in under-resourced Amazon regions of Peru.

This activity seeks to reduce the impacts of the disease through an approach that integrates communication for behavior change / social change and the active participation of the organized community.

Likewise, orientation, counseling and emotional containment services will be provided to the most vulnerable populations, and economic recovery initiatives will be supported for families living in communities in priority geographic areas, taking into account their needs and idiosyncrasies.
