The COVID-19 Global Humanitarian Response Plan is the international community’s primary fundraising vehicle to do that. This update of the Plan is based on extensive in-country consultations and reflects real-time needs. It brings together appeals from the WHO and other UN humanitarian agencies.

This plan also includes programmes that respond to the projected rapid growth in food insecurity.
