United Nations Immediate Support to the COVID-19 Response in the Philippines

The United Nations in the Philippines has mobilised rapidly and comprehensively to support its government partners in responding to the COVID-19  crisis. As part of its broader global response plan, UN efforts in the Philippines have focused on three key objectives.2 First, to implement a large- scale and multifaceted health response, guided by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan.3 Second, to support wide-ranging efforts to address the socioeconomic, humanitarian and human rights aspects of the crisis.4 And third, to ensure a recovery process that builds forward better.

The UN Philippines has issued a report, titled United Nations Immediate Support to the COVID-19 Response in the Philippines. This report provides a full, up-to-date picture of the ongoing UN immediate support to the COVID-19 response in the Philippines. It highlights the UN’s substantial contributions to interventions in the health sector, a host of urgent humanitarian activities targeting the most vulnerable, and a multi-sector programme of dynamic development initiatives aimed at assisting the Philippines to recover quickly and sustainably, and emerge more resistant to future shocks.
