- The Fund has disbursed more than $60 million to accelerate vaccine development, equip frontline responders with life-saving personal protective equipment and protect the most vulnerable children and families in low-resource settings.
- In mid-April, UN partners teamed up on the first Solidarity Flight, part of an effort to rapidly reestablish a global pandemic supply chain.
