When opening an AMCS, the type of care to be strengthened (isolation of mild cases, monitoring of moderate cases, hospitalization of severe cases, intensive care for critical cases, etc.) must be identified in advance to determine the type of building to select and its use or purpose. Knowing its purpose will facilitate building assessment and redesign, as well as the scale and planning of the work in terms of the human resources and materials to be employed.

The technical recommendations in this document are designed to guide the steps in the assessment, redesign, and scaling up of new AMCSs. Users will be able to quickly and methodically locate and determine the viability of new sites.
