WHO COVID-19 Response Fund
The fund will enable us to:
Send essential supplies such as personal protective equipment to frontline health workers
Enable all countries to track and detect the disease by boosting laboratory capacity through training and equipment.
Ensure health workers and communities everywhere have access to the latest science-based information to protect themselves, prevent infection and care for those in need.
Accelerate efforts to fast-track the discovery and development of lifesaving vaccines, diagnostics and treatments
The Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan outlines a funding need of at least US$675 million for critical response efforts in countries most in need of help through April 2020. As this outbreak evolves, funding needs are likely to increase.
