Our response is framed around three objectives. Helping countries to prepare for and protect people from the pandemic and its impacts, to respond during the outbreak, and to recover from the economic and social impacts in the months to come.
Unpd will support countries to strengthen their health systems, including by helping them procure much-needed medical supplies, quickly leverage digital technologies and ensure health workers are paid.
UNDP will help countries work across key sectors to slow the spread of the virus and to provide social protection for vulnerable populations, promoting a whole-of-government and whole-of-society response to complement efforts in the health sector.
UNDP will support countries to assess the social and economic impacts of covid-19 and take urgent recovery measures to minimize long-term impact, particularly for vulnerable and marginalized groups, and to help societies to recover.
