Intended for decision makers and managers at the national and subnational levels, this guidance addresses the specific role of community-based health care in the pandemic context and outlines the adaptations needed to keep people safe, maintain continuity of essential services, and ensure an effective response to COVID-19. Some of the activities described in this guidance may require skills, equipment, and supplies available in some settings only at primary care facilities. Adaptation of the guidance to the local context will be essential to avoid placing unrealistic expectation on local community health care teams.
