Monitoring Government Response to COVID-19 in Nangarhar, Laghman and Kunar – Cycle 1

In July 2020, APPRO conducted research in Kabul, Nangarhar, Laghman and Kunar to monitor how the government funds and international assistance to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 are being used by local authorities, particularly Provincial Governor Offices and Directorates of Public Health in Nangarhar, Kunar and Laghman provinces. The monitoring also examined the extent to which procurement procedures in Kabul and the provinces have been aligned to meet the growing pressure of COVID-19 and whether these funds are being disbursed transparently and in a timely manner to purchase the essential equipment and related services.
