Сполучені Штати, через Агентство США з міжнародного розвитку (USAID) і Державний департамент США, надають понад 30 мільйонів доларів фінансової допомоги Афганістану, Колумбії і Монголії у відповідь на пандемію COVID-19.

This amount includes 15.6 million USD to Afghanistan in support to surveillance, laboratories improvements, case-management, infection prevention and control, community engagement, and technical assistance, as well as 5 million USD of assistance for communities displaced as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. It also includes 12.6 million USD to help the Colombian authorities efforts, including surveillance, water and sanitation supplies provision, case-management, and support to local authorities and local communities; and 1.2 million USD to assist Mongolia in preparing laboratory systems, activating case-finding and event-based surveillance, and supporting technical experts for response and preparedness.

All of three countries requested assistance through NATO’s Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC). The EADRCC is NATO’s principal disaster response mechanism. The Centre operates on a 24/7 basis, coordinating requests from NATO Allies and partners, as well as offers of assistance to cope with the consequences of major crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
