Standard Operation Guidelines for Ayeyarwady Centers

Since care will be provided in a non-traditional environment, it is critical to ensure these facilities can support implementation of recommended infection prevention, treatment and control practices. These Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) are to ensure smooth operation in the quarantine facility and daily monitoring using the reporting format to maintain functional flow and reduce/minimize the interaction between patients and healthcare professionals, as well as support staff so that transmission of disease is prevented.

Mask Factory by Ayeyarwady Foundation

COVID-19 has caused a dramatic shortage in the supply of face mask, which is mainly explained by a surge in demand. Surgical masks and N95 respirators are used to prevent the spread of respiratory infections. Both clinical masks and N95 respirators are disposable, explaining the high and recurrent demand. Looking ahead, it would be excessively costly for every country to develop production capacity that matches crisis demand, global trade restrictions and encompasses the whole value chain. Meeting demand for face masks has become one of the main issues for Myanmar fighting the pandemic. To fulfill the need of Mask Supply in Myanmar to fight against Covid-19, Ayeyarwady Foundation build Mask Production Line with the capacity of 80 masks per minute.
