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.
