The United States and India are partnering to strengthen the global response to COVID-19 on a range of issues such as addressing infectious disease outbreaks, strengthening health systems, securing global supply chains and vaccine support. 

Since the outbreak of the pandemic, the U.S. Government, through USAID, has allocated more than $216 million in COVID-19 relief to India including more than $50 million in emergency supplies. 

Together with our partners, USAID’s COVID-19 assistance is providing life-saving treatments, disseminating public health messages, strengthening case-finding and surveillance, supporting vaccine supply chain logistics, addressing misinformation and vaccine hesitancy, and training healthcare workers to deliver vaccines safely and effectively across India, benefitting more than 120 million people to date. 

To help address the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, USAID established new initiatives to help entrepreneurs and informal sector workers recover and maintain steady incomes, with a special focus on increasing women’s participation in the workforce.
