The USA government has passed coronavirus legislation directing $8.3 Billion in new funding for COVID response in the USA and around the world through CDC and USAID. Hundreds of millions of dollars will soon be available for global disease detection, rapid response, public health infrastructure, and economic stabilization.

How will donors, governments, and health workers use this emergency funding to slow new infections and respond to over 100,000 confirmed coronavirus patients in 97 countries?

RSVP Now for COVID Response Workshop

Please RSVP now to join a special convening of the Global Digital Health Network to explore how we can support the COVID-19 response, on Thursday, March 12th – online and in-person thanks to JSI and IntraHealth International.

We expect global participation from over 100 donor, government, and health workers who are looking for coronavirus response solutions for low- and middle-income countries around the world.

Our interactive workshop will start with an update on COVID-19 and coronavirus infections, including the latest information on how its spreading and what’s effective in reducing its impact. We’ll hear from government health experts in LMICs on what national health systems are doing to prepare and mitigate COVID-19 impact. We’ll also revisit lessons learned from the West African Ebola response.

Next we’ll break into small working groups to explore the challenges in responding to coronavirus, and identify use cases where digital development solutions like these can be utilized in COVID response. Finally, we’ll hear from solution providers on key disease response innovations, and wrap up with ideas on the way forward.

      My good friend , I greet you. For the sake of CLARITY , both COVID-19 and HIV / AIDS are viral diseases, hence ,they can be studied or researched together.
