The planned response reflects the current situation which is evolving, and will be adjusted based on further assessments, contingencies and emerging issues. Due to the pressing need to expand the provision of health and WASH services, activities that have not been covered by the IFRC Venezuela Country Office Plan will be included under this Appeal, and the Country Office Plan will be reviewed to ensure full complementarity and avoid duplications. Medical equipment needs replacement and urgent maintenance to cover the high demand for medical services, throughout the wider public health care system, including VRC health network. Also, national power outages have caused the deterioration of the functioning conditions in the health facilities, which generates an immediate need to invest in a better operative integrity in case of presenting or prolonging the difficulties of having continuous electrical sources in public health installations. Medical equipment, including power generators, are particularly in demand.
