COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO


The world has never faced a crisis like COVID-19. The pandemic is impacting communities everywhere. It’s never been more urgent to support the global response. The humanity, solidarity and generosity of people and organizations everywhere is also unprecedented. But we can’t stop now.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is leading and coordinating the global effort with a range of partners, supporting countries to prevent, detect, and respond to the pandemic. Donations support WHO’s work, including with partners, 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 research and development of a vaccine and treatments for all who need them.

See below for more ways to give, including corporate and foundation giving options, tax-deductibility, and information on other Fund partners including UNICEF and the vaccine development alliance CEPI. Every donation helps support life-saving work for the world.
