UNDP held “Brain Ring” competitions to raise awareness of COVID-19
December 15, 2022
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Turkmenistan organized intellectual contests "Brain Rings" to raise awareness and improve knowledge of COVID-19 among students of the Turkmen Agricultural Institute (Dashoguz city) and the State Energy Institute of Turkmenistan (Mary city). The events were organized within the framework of “Turkmenistan COVID-19 Response” project, funded by the World Bank.
The “Brain Ring” contest was organized in the form of quiz, where participants’ knowledge was tested in relatation to COVID-19 prevention. The winners received prizes, while all participants were acknowledged for their participation by being awarded with certificates.
During the opening remarks the specialists of the UNDP/World Bank project “Turkmenistan COVID-19 Response” familiarized students and teachers with the project objectives, aiming at strengthening the medical systems and ensuring timely response of the country to the challenges of the pandemic. UNDP, in cooperation with the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan, UNICEF and WHO in Turkmenistan, implements activities towards building national capacity in the area of laboratory research, medical care, professional development of medical personnel, purchasing reagents, medical equipment and medicines, elimination of health risks and promotion of the use of digital technologies for effective control and monitoring of infectious diseases.
Particular emphasis was placed on Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) and Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP), which serve as effective tools not only in identifying, assessing and managing social and environmental risks, but also in increasing the involvement of all stakeholders in the process of discussing and improving project mechanisms.
Raising awareness of COVID-19 prevention measures, as well as lessons learned during the current pandemic, will help the public cope with the challenges arising from the pandemic and be more effective in adopting preventive measures for personal protection.
UNDP works in 170 countries and territories to eradicate poverty while protecting the planet. We help countries develop strong policies, skills, partnerships and institutions so they can sustain their progress.
