USAID is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic with decisive action at home and abroad. Our priorities in the response are to protect the safety and health security of our global workforce, ensure that we can continue our life-saving mission across the world, and support partner countries in their response to COVID-19.

Across the globe, USAID is supporting countries affected by COVID-19. We are working directly with governments, multilateral organizations, NGOs, the private sector, and other organizations responding on the ground to combat the dangerous pathogen. This includes working with frontline workers to slow the spread, care for the affected, and equip local communities with the tools needed to fight back against COVID-19.

The United States of America has made available more than $1 billion to combat COVID-19. This commitment demonstrates strong U.S. leadership in response to the outbreak and helps continue America's strong tradition of supporting public health around the world. Along with the U.S. private sector, the American people continue to lead in responding to this pandemic.
