From the Document: "[1] There have been notable achievements made by Azerbaijan in their response to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. To further boost its response to the ongoing pandemic, a team of WHO [World Health Organization] experts has recommended that the country strengthen contact tracing and testing. [2] Access to basic handwashing facilities is a key condition for schools to be able to operate safely in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet the latest data from the WHO/UNICEF [United Nations Children's Fund] Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) found that 43% of schools worldwide lacked access to basic handwashing with soap and water in 2019. [3] More than 2800 community health workers have been trained in Haiti as part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and meetings have been conducted with community leaders to provide them with accurate information about COVID-19. All of these efforts provide muchneeded support to the Ministry of Health and the country's Multisectoral Pandemic Management Commission of COVID-19."
