We carry out out life-saving prevention work and provides treatment to those affected by Covid-19.

Covid-19 has made the world’s poorest people poorer.

It sent shockwaves through economies, so millions can’t afford decent food to eat.

What’s the solution?

We support health systems and provide life-saving assistance. We got quarantine facilities and treatment hospitals up and running when health facilities became overwhelmed.

We deliver PPE and other resources to those in need. We spread awareness about the virus and team up with local governments to combat the pandemic.

Covid-19 vaccinations

We stop the spread of the virus in its tracks through vaccines. Today, only 1 in 5 people in Africa are fully vaccinated. We want to change that. As a trusted healthcare provider, we’re working hard to get vaccines to those in need.

Why good nutrition is important to help save lives from Covid-19

A well-nourished, healthy person is less likely to become ill. While many people across the world are still waiting for the vaccine, a strong immune system is often people’s first line of defence.

And this eases the pressure on a country’s health system. It helps people to be prepared for Covid-19 and future disease outbreaks.

How we're responding to coronavirus

Covid-19 is going to have a catastrophic impact on the world's most vulnerable people. That’s why our teams are working hard to help communities respond to the virus.
