Bloomberg Philanthropies is accelerating the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic with initiatives including the Coronavirus Local Response Initiative and the Coronavirus Global Response Initiative, and is making investments in cities like New York and London.
Giving public health professionals the tools to protect the public is vital to saving lives and to helping mitigate the kind of economic and social damage that could make this crisis even more debilitating for families and communities.
Investing in Cities
Bloomberg Philanthropies has donated thousands of masks to hospitals in London and New York, and is supporting cultural and social service non-profits in both cities as they navigate this difficult period.
