Amman (August 29, 2021) - Today, the United States, through the United States Agency for International Development, announced $4.7 million in urgent COVID-19 assistance for Jordan. This funding will provide technical assistance, equipment, and supplies to health facilities diagnosing and treating COVID-19 patients, including Al-Bashir Hospitals and Jordan’s laboratories. The funds will also train frontline health workers providing critical care to COVID-19 patients and administering vaccines.

USAID Mission Director Sherry F. Carlin highlighted that “protecting lives and Jordan’s economic stability are shared goals in the strong partnership between our two countries. These additional funds will reinforce Jordan’s health system by building the skills of health workers to care for COVID-19 patients and by strengthening the capacity of local institutions to respond to public health threats. This assistance will accelerate progress in the joint fight against COVID-19.”
