United Nations (UN) has announced the establishment of the UN Zika Response Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) to finance critical unfunded priorities in the response to the Zika outbreak. The fund was launched by the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the UN Headquarters in New York, United States.
The Fund aims to provide a rapid, flexible and accountable platform to support a coordinated response from the UN system and partners. It will directly support the Zika Strategic Response Framework developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in consultation with UN agencies.
This fund will help donors to contribute to a central point and an Advisory Committee will direct funds to the highest-priority activities in the affected countries.
So now let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. United nations, Secretary General Ban Ki Moon has launched which fund recently ?
