As COVID-19 cases surge, and as Nepal enters another challenging time, the United States Government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), announces an additional $8.5 million in emergency response funding to combat the disease and to support the Nepali people.

The additional assistance will help intensify the Government of Nepal’s COVID-19 testing, contact tracing and case investigation, treatment, infection prevention and control, border control, and other work at the federal, provincial and municipal levels.

USAID/Nepal will also scale-up its response at the community level, supporting the most vulnerable. Assistance will include support to households and families through life-saving COVID-19 counseling and referrals, nutrition counseling, health care access, ensure the continuity of critical HIV services, and mitigate the secondary impacts of COVID-19.
