Coronavirus Response

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.

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.

This global initiative will support immediate action to prevent or slow the spread of COVID-19 in vulnerable low- and middle-income countries

With Resolve to Save Lives and the World Health Organization, the $40 million Bloomberg Philanthropies Coronavirus Global Response Initiative will have a strong focus on African nations, but will also extend beyond to support the additional mayors and city governments around the world.
