COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund
From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund is a global fund for supporting the work of the World Health Organization (WHO) in containing the COVID-19 pandemic. It was launched on March 13, 2020 by the Director-General of WHO in Geneva, Switzerland. The purpose of the response fund is to "support WHO’s work to track and understand the spread of the virus; to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information; and to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments." Major companies, including Facebook, H&M and Google have donated to the Solidarity Response Fund, in addition to several private individuals.
