COVID-19: WHO's response in countries
The world is facing an unprecedented challenge with communities and economies everywhere affected by the growing COVID-19 pandemic. The world is coming together to combat the COVID-19 pandemic bringing governments, organizations from across industries and sectors and individuals together to help respond to this global outbreak. The outpouring of global solidarity and support sparked by this shared challenge has been phenomenal.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is leading and coordinating the global effort, supporting countries to prevent, detect, and respond to the pandemic.
Everyone can now support directly the response coordinated by WHO. People and organizations who want to help fight the pandemic and support WHO and partners can now donate through the COVID-Solidarity Response Fund for WHO
, powered by the WHO Foundation in collaboration with the UN Foundation and a global network of partners at www.COVID19ResponseFund.org
Support needed for 2021
The work in 2021 builds on the progress achieved in 2020, continues to support the response in countries towards suppressing transmission, reducing exposure, countering misinformation and disinformation, protecting the vulnerable, reducing mortality and morbidity rates and increasing equitable access of diagnostics and vaccines for all.
Donations received through the fund will go towards activities such as:
- Suppress transmission through public health and social measures, including detecting and testing cases, tracing and quarantining contacts, shielding high-risk groups
- Managing the infodemic and fighting disinformation and misinformation
- Protect the most vulnerable by building vaccine acceptance, ensurance vaccine deployment in all countries and carrying out vaccination campaigns
- Reduce mortality and morbidity and save lives by ensuring quality care, training of health workforce and access to essential commodities

WHO wants to thank all donors and partners who responded with generosity and solidarity to the appeals made in 2020, which allowed WHO to support countries and partners all over the world on their response.
