The United States Government Commits an Additional $1.8 Million to Keep the Nepali People Protected from the Novel Coronavirus Pandemic

The U.S. Government is proud to announce an additional $1.8 million in assistance to bolster the Government of Nepal’s novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) readiness and response.

These funds are part of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Emergency Reserve Fund for Contagious Infectious Diseases. Of the total funds, nearly $1.1 million will scale up existing USAID health programs in Nepal to educate communities on COVID-19 prevention and to counter misinformation regarding the virus.

The remaining $700,000 will support ongoing preparedness and response activities in Nepal implemented through the World Health Organization.
