n response to the COVID-19 pandemic, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) in collaboration with the Government of Mozambique’s National Disaster Management Agency (INGC) conducted an assessment in the resettlement sites from 4 to 10 November 2020, with the sole purpose to inform government and humanitarian partners on preparedness levels and precautionary measures currently available in resettlement sites hosting populations displaced by Cyclone Idai. The information gathered is intended to help partners plan interventions. This information will further allow partners to identify recommended health and site preparation measures to prevent and contain an outbreak in the resettlement sites in the central region.
Focal points in 72 out of 73 resettlement sites reported a noticeable change in people’s behaviours and habits to better prevent COVID-19. The only exception was Tossene Choma resettlement site, situated in Sussundenga district in Manica province.
