Integral Global was recently awarded the opportunity to continue their work in Bangladesh, with a new focus on COVID-19 in the garment-factory business. This project focuses on mitigating the spread of COVID-19, specifically in Dhaka, in coordination with the Ayat Foundation’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences to provide a comprehensive education, testing, and contact tracing program. Three garment factories are the primary focus for this pilot-study, addressing the dire need to establish protocols for safe working environments in garment factories. The protocols and safe working environments targets consist of 1) knowledge and awareness, 2) testing capacity and quality, and 3) contact tracing.
