18 January 2021

The rehabilitation of two summer camps in the villages of Barrushan and Anjin in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region (GBAO), Tajikistan serving as a potential quarantine or treatment centre, were successfully completed by the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH). Serving as an additional treatment facility for Covid-19 patients, "these rehabilitated summer camps are now fully equipped to cater for 50 to 70 coronavirus patients at a time", says Laylo Shogunbekova, AKAH project Manager. To enhance joint and coordinated response efforts, AKAH, the Aga Khan Foundation Tajikistan, and the GBAO Regional Government signed a Memorandum of Understanding on the mutual usage of these summer camps.
