Initial COVID-19 responses in Bangladesh, Kenya, Pakistan, Sierra Leone and Uganda: Documentation and learning from March to May 2020

This is an executive summary of the full report that documents the experiences and challenges of scaling up the response to COVID-19 in the first three months of the outbreak – March to May 2020 – in five countries: Bangladesh, Kenya, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, and Uganda.

This work was undertaken under the DFID-funded Maintains programme, to inform Maintains’ research, technical assistance, and learning agendas. The primary objective was to see what Maintains can learn around the national ability to scale up in response to a shock. This will consider the governance of the outbreak and its impacts across social sectors, with a focus on the health sector.
