Mr. Khurshid Alam, UNDP Bhutan’s Deputy Resident Representative handed over the laptops to Mr. Rixin Jamtsho, Offtg. Director, Department of Public Health, Ministry of Health.

The support will help strengthen the national outbreak investigation and surveillance system which has always been an integral part of Bhutan’s response to COVID-19.

With increasing COVID-19 cases due to the lifting of lockdowns and relaxation of other COVID-19 protocols, the national surveillance system continues to play a key role in monitoring outbreaks across the nation.

The Ministry of Health would like to thank UNDP for proactively supporting the Royal Government of Bhutan in its pandemic containment efforts.
