Since 2 January 2020, the three levels of WHO (China country office, Regional Office for the Western Pacific and headquarters) have been working together to respond to this outbreak of COVID-19. On 30 January, WHO declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). On 11 March, WHO Director General characterized COVID-19 as a pandemic.

We are mobilizing support from the Organizations and individuals across the globe to deliver the following:

  • Increasing understanding of the disease:
  • Communicating with the public: on how to protect themselves and others, especially the vulnerable and those at highest risk.
  • Keeping  the general public informed:  Providing updated information on manuals
  • Coordinating our communities to Health Facilities and resources:
  • Helping people prepare: We want to work closely with families to help them prepare for the rapid detection and response to cases and community transmission including sending supplies, coordinating with technical expertise and training
