Supporting the development of Pandemic Fund proposals - Weekly follow-up webinar recordings

The pandemic of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) showed beyond all doubt that national governments and the global multilateral system were ill-equipped to deal effectively with the growing scale and complexity of health emergencies. There is an urgent need for coordinated action to build stronger health systems and mobilize additional resources for pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response.

The new Pandemic Fund will provide a dedicated stream of additional, long-term financing to strengthen critical pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response (PPR) capabilities in low- and middle-income countries through investments and technical support at the national, regional, and global levels as well as incentivize countries to increase investments, enhance coordination among partners.

Información del curso

To complement the series of webinars held late in March on HEPR, WHO and partners are hosting weekly webinars to support the country-led development of Pandemic Fund proposals and national plans. These webinars will provide participants with an overview of the steps on a weekly basis. In addition to reviewing and discussing progress against the timeline, each session will also look ahead to the coming week’s actions.

These sessions will further outline tools and approaches countries can take to develop Pandemic Fund proposals as part of broader national plans and proposals for health emergency preparedness, readiness and resilience.

In addition to the webinars, the recently launched microsite on the WHO Partners Platform provides tools and templates with instructions to support the development of national plans and proposals. Additional templates and refinements will be added in the coming weeks.

Please, visit the previous webinar recordings that took place in March 2023, here.

This is a site for webinar recordings and no certificates are available. We are releasing new content every week.
