U.S. GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE TO PERU: COVID-19 RESPONSE

Speeches Shim

As of December 2021, the U.S. Government has allocated more than $75.5 million in new  resources and two million doses of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines to assist Peru in its  emergency response to COVID-19. The aid continues a strong history of investing in  Peru’s health care systems and long-term development, mainly through the U.S. Agency  for International Development (USAID).

Ongoing U.S. Government-funded programs and partners are also adapting activities to  respond to this unprecedented crisis. Over the last 20 years, U.S. assistance to Peru totals more than $3.5 billion, including $265 million in the health sector.  Emergency assistance comes from the U.S. Agency for International Development  (USAID), the Department of Defense Humanitarian Assistance Program, and the  Department of State’s Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance fund.
