Direct Relief is also staging personal protective equipment with regional response agencies across the world, including in the Caribbean and South America through the Pan American Health Organization.

International Rescue Committee (IRC)

IRC works in countries that have weak health systems which are less prepared to combat the disease. Vulnerable populations and those living in crisis will be hit the hardest by this outbreak. They’ve launched coronavirus preparedness and response programs in over 40 countries, including the United States, Greece, Syria and Yemen.

PIH; Partners In Health

PIH’s mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. By establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations based in settings of poverty, Partners In Health strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair. The four prongs of COVID-19 work are: testing, provision of care, assist local government response to COVID-19, and mobilize community health workers to seek out those who are ill.
