World Health Organisation Emergency Response Fund
We are all affected by the growing COVID-19 pandemic. It's an unprecedented health challenge and we know people and organisations everywhere want to help. The World Health Organisation is leading and coordinating the global effort, supporting countries to prevent, detect, and respond to the pandemic.
The greatest need right now is to help ensure all countries are prepared, especially those with the weakest health systems. Donations 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.
