Supporting the development of Pandemic Fund proposals – Weekly follow-up webinar recordings








The pandemic of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) showed beyond all doubt that national governments and the global multilateral system were ill-equipped to deal effectively with the growing scale and complexity of health emergencies. There is an urgent need for coordinated action to build stronger health systems and mobilize additional resources for pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response.

The new Pandemic Fund will provide a dedicated stream of additional, long-term financing to strengthen critical pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response (PPR) capabilities in low- and middle-income countries through investments and technical support at the national, regional, and global levels as well as incentivize countries to increase investments, enhance coordination among partners.
