United States Humanitarian and Health Assistance Response to COVID-19

The State Department and USAID provided an initial investment of nearly $274 million in emergency health and humanitarian assistance to help countries in need, on top of the funding we already provide to multilateral organisations such as the World Health Organisation and UNICEF.

In Kenya: $1 million in health assistance was announced to bolster risk communication, prepare health-communication networks and media for a possible case, and help provide public health messaging for media, health workers, and communities.
