COVID-19 situation quarterly report in the six countries of the Eastern Partnership July – September 2021
In the framework of the EU COVID-19 Solidarity Programme for Eastern Partnership, AFEW International, People in Need (PIN) and the Netherlands Helsinki Committee (NHC) joined forces to propose a set of interventions in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and contribute towards longer-term socio-economic resilience of vulnerable groups.
One of the activities in this project is the collection of information on the epidemiology of COVID-19, the measures taken by local governments to contain the epidemic and information on access to health services. This report doesn’t give conclusions or recommendations for the next steps; the report functions as an information resource as support for the development of (new) interventions.
This report gives an overview of the period 1 July – 30 September 2021, the fourth quarter of the implementation period of the project. Such a report will be produced for every quarter of the project duration.

— Official sources on the coronavirus situation in the countries;
