UN launches Global Humanitarian Response Plan to fight COVID-19_50.1

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres launched a $2 billion coordinated global humanitarian response plan to fight COVID-19 in 51 countries across South America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. UN Secretary-General has warned that the pandemic is threatening the entire human race and all of us must fight back.

The Global HRP has been launched for a period of nine months (April–December 2020). The response plan will be coordinated by the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and will bring together requirements from the World Health Organization and other UN humanitarian agencies.

To kick-start the response plan, an additional $60 million from the UN’s Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF). This brings CERF’s support to humanitarian action in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to $75 million. In addition, country-based pooled funds have allocated more than $3 million so far.

The response plan will be implemented by UN agencies, with international NGOs and NGO consortia playing a direct role in the response. The Response plan will provide the following benefits:

  • Deliver essential laboratory equipment to test for the virus, and medical supplies to treat people.
  • Install handwashing stations in camps and settlements.
  • Launch public information campaigns on how to protect yourself and others from the virus.
  • Establish airbridges and hubs across Africa, Asia and Latin America to move humanitarian workers and supplies to where they are needed most.
